Are you ready to change your life through writing?
While holding space and providing a safe, sacred environment, I encourage, through writing and discussion, the exploration of grief, loss, trauma, family secrets, genealogical topics, inherited trauma, effects of the war on families in addition to the veteran, caregiving, spirituality and religion, PTSD, racism, LGBTQI, and any other topic that appears through the course of your writing and participation in this group. This writing group encourages you to go deeper than the basic facts. To dig deep into the emotions and ramifications of personal and family choices.
Throughout your participation in this writing group, you may also become aware of how your personal story and life changes. Everything is connected and there are many parallels beneath the surface facts we tend to gather about our families. Participation in this writing group is likely to change your life in large and small ways.

You get one 30-minute Zoom consult to discuss with Jennifer your writing plans for the group. Not sure where to start? Need resources? We can discuss this in your consult. Must be scheduled after you register and complete your assessment.
The group meets once a month, via Zoom to provide feedback to members about their writing projects. Replays are available for group members.
I am running two separate groups. You can register for the one that fits your schedule. 2nd Thurs at 12:30 p.m. CST or 3rd Thurs at 7:00 p.m. CST.
The first Monday of each month at 11:00 a.m. CST/CDT Jennifer offers a live Zoom Office Hours session. Drop in to ask questions about research, writing, resources, and more. Replays are available for group members.
Each participant agrees to participate a minimum of six months which allows members to create trust and support each other more deeply. Email addresses will be exchanged for group members to allow sharing of drafts and comments.
As needed, I will provide worksheets, announcements about webinars, classes, books, articles, and other resources to help writers work through the topics about which they are writing.
The writing group has a $75 setup fee which covers your entry into the group plus initial Zoom private consultation with Jennifer and resources. There is also a $30/month subscription fee. As long as you are a paying member of the group you have access to all the meetings, replays, worksheets, and more.
