5:30 till 8:45. 

$25.00 or $35 a night (see choices below).

This is a one year commitment.

I Will take up to 8 writers. (Intentionally keeping this circle small). 

For $25 I will read and critique three of your pages a month. (an $18 value). For $35 I will read and critique up to 5 pages a month ($25 value) 

We will meet once a month at Healing Services on the River in Prairie du Sac on the SECOND Wednesday of the month for a year. During our circle we will begin with a check in: How is your writing life? I will consult with each of you in the circle. You will be given time each night to read up to 4 pages of your work and get some responses. We will close with my giving some writing prompts and writing exercises to help you move forward with your writing. All writing prompts and tasks will be based on your work with the intention to develop certain writing skills.

We will address other areas of the writer’s life beyond the writing of your project or book, which include book proposals, query letters, purposeful promotion, building an authentic platform, and the disciplines of a writer. The primary focus however will be on the actual writing and creative momentum of your writing. My focus is on keeping the creative momentum of your writing active and to help you bring out your  unique self on the page. 

You will also be matched up with one other writer who will be your "creative partner," who will be your writing partner. 

Your Writing Sherpa,  Julie
