'LOVE' STORIES

It all started when…

A friend of mine said "I'm not a writer." This coming from a woman who had SO many stories to tell, and she ended up creating a blog that gained a huge following and meant so much to so many people.  I encouraged her to tell her stories, and in the midst of taking my own advice, I found a disturbing dearth of opportunities geared toward women. Many of the competitions and grants I found had crippling restrictions, such as AGE. Really? People over 35 have no stories to tell, and nothing important to say? 

I knew right then and there that I wanted part of my contribution as a writer to be lifting up other women writers. Thankfully, the divine Ms. Meryl Streep has got you covered for screenwriting. And while I'm very excited about my Stortelling I and Storytelling II workshops, I wanted to get to the heart of the matter.

What if you know you have something to say, but don't know where to begin? What if your heartspace is holding onto something incredible, but you don't know how to let it out? Well, you've come to the right place. "Love' Stories is about getting quiet, accessing that inner space, listening to inner teacher-storyteller---and giving yourself permission to let it out. So open the door and tell the story that's in your heartspace to tell.
