Journaling is for anyone, no matter your level of writing experience. But too often journaling (or the idea of journaling) feels like a chore. Many people are intimidated to start journaling, worried they’ll do it the “wrong” way. Others enjoy journaling for a while but eventually give it up, because it starts to feel dull, or like just one more dreaded item to tick off a to-do list.

The good news? There is no right or wrong way to journal, and it doesn’t have to feel like a chore! This workshop is designed to help you find the fun in journaling and to support you to create an enjoyable and sustainable journaling practice that works for you. If you are already journaling, this workshop will help you deepen, expand, and freshen up your journaling practice.

In this workshop, you’ll try out using a journal to clear your mind, explore your thinking, notice what's going well in your life, vent, name and face fears, set goals, document your life, chart growth, express gratitude, develop a writing practice, start a creative “compost pile,” and capture ideas for creative writing projects. You’ll also have the option of using a journal entry from the workshop as the basis for personal essay or memoir writing.

The writing you do in this workshop is for you; you will not be asked to share your writing with the leader or the other participants.

This workshop is limited to ten participants. It will be led in English, but you are welcome to join even if English is not your first language, or if you write (or plan to write) in another language.

"I liked everything about it. It was well balanced in every way and very inspiring and interactive."

"Lisa immediately created an atmosphere that felt safe."

"I really liked the flow of the workshop and that we wrote so much. All these different prompts and ways of applying journaling were really helpful!"

"The workshop was great. Lisa has made a huge difference in the way I approach writing in general over the years. My inner critic is way less critical now."
