It Doesn’t Need To Be Summer…

… for you to want some space to write.

If you’re shivering in Sydney or chittering in Cowal (that was me yesterday!) it doesn’t need to be summer where you are to take part in the Summer Writing Space

The online group will work by email updates and sharing on ning, so time zones don’t count, and climatic conditions are irrelevant ;-)

Sorry for excluding those of you in the southern hemisphere when I wrote about this first time round.  Thanks for asking so I could put it right :-)

The details again:

  • A space (on Ning) to share pieces of writing and other materials (photos, reflections on process and so on)
  • A small group (maximum 20 participants)
  • A time limited programme (6 weeks) but long enough to develop writing habits
  • Supported and facilitated by me (with some prompts, but generally just to hold the space)
  • Open to you wherever you are in the world, summer or winter
  • Cost: $30 USD / £20
  • Dates: July 19 - August 30

    I did it! I clicked on the Paypal button and I am now looking forward to this great adventure. Half of the time I will be off work, so that fits perfectly. The other three weeks I’ll manage somehow.

    I’ll be there too, really looking forward to it and getting quite excited :-)

    Contemplating…hope it does not fill up before I talk to coach Davina on Friday - or get my guide reading from Kara….Oh yes! and I will need to find the funds - my desires do not often match my bank book…sadly true

    Joanna, I’ve signed up, took action before I chickened out :-) Looking forward to much needed support!

  5. Kari says:

    Hmmm, can you give me a few more details on this? :) Sounds like something I would definitely be interested in…

  6. Patricia says:

    one question I have as I continue to ponder - what is ning and how does one access it? I am technically illiterate…

    I just write on word…I do not know how to use the publisher/writing program or editing program on my MS office…..I am trying to learn it all, but I want to just write

    Ulla great :-)

    Linda me too!

    Patricia thanks for your interest, and reminding me I need to be clearer about some of the essentials like what Ning is… I will do better at explaining next time round…

    Karen yay!
