Slipper Camp: Home

21317970_10154667537830957_958661983034598423_n

I’d like to invite you to my next available Slipper Camp.

The topic: Home.

Home is a breathtakingly universal need. After her great adventure, Dorothy realized, “There’s no place like home.” Robert Frost wrote, “Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.” Home might be where the heart is. It might be a person, a pet, a place… you name it. I’ve often felt hiraeth: a longing for a home that never was.

I hope you will be 1 of 10 writers who will receive 3 illustrated prompts about HOME every OTHER morning for 20 days along with daily writing tips and coaching suggestions. You will be writing 1,000 words (2 pages) on 1 of the 3 daily prompts and sending it to me by midnight every OTHER day. I will read them each day and we will talk about your writing at the end of Slipper Camp.

PM me for cost of tuition.
Limit: 10 writers
Starts: November 13th ends December 1st
Please let me know if you’re interested in joining us.
Payment secures your spot.

xoxo

Slipper Camp – the secrets we carry

I’d like to invite you to my next available Slipper Camp.

The topic: the secrets we carry.

All of us have secrets. In this online writing ‘Slipper Camp’ we will be writing about our secrets, both light and dark, our deepest fears and shames but also our secret strengths. That’s why I love the quote above from Marianne Williamson-that it is our potential and power that frightens us and keeps us small. That perhaps the greatest secret we carry is that of our own magnificence.

It will be the same format: 10 writers will receive 3 illustrated prompts about the secrets we carry every OTHER morning for 20 days along with daily writing tips and coaching suggestions.

Tuition: $200
Limit: 10 writers
Starts: July 9th ends July 27th
Please let me know if you’re interested in joining us.
Payment secures your spot.

Slipper Camp – Freedom

Dear Writers,

FREEDOM is the topic of my next online writing Slipper Camp (Starts February 12th, ends 20 days later.)

FREEDOM. If you click on the photo above you’ll see what inspired me to create this particular Slipper Camp.

FREEDOM. We’ll be writing at a heightened time, a critical time in our lives and the life of this country. We’ll be writing about freedoms we celebrate; freedoms that have been denied to us or to others; our personal journeys from slavery to freedom or vice versa; times we’ve longed for freedom for ourselves and others; times we’ve fought for freedom and won or lost.

FREEDOM. There’s so much to write about.

Slipper Camp will be the same format as always – 10 writers will receive 3 illustrated prompts about FREEDOM every OTHER morning for 20 days along with daily writing tips and coaching suggestions.

You’ll be writing 1,000 words (2 pages) on 1 of the 3 daily prompts and sending them to me by midnight every OTHER day. Whenever I get your words I’ll read them. At the end of Slipper Camp we’ll set a one-hour call to talk about your writings.

Hundreds of writers have taken this structured online writing course over the past 9 years. They say the combination of structure and accountability has yielded some of their best writing. Books, screenplays, a play, two novels, memoirs and numerous published articles have been generated in Slipper Camps.

Please join us. I’d love to read your words. Limited to 10 writers.

Tuition: $200

Slipper Camp: BLOODLINE/FAMILY

SLIPPER CAMP: BLOODLINE/FAMILY

lindahogan

My next online writing Slipper Camp – Bloodline – begins on February 20th. I was inspired by this quote: ‘Walking, I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me. Be still, they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands’- Linda Hogan.

We will be writing about our ancestors and our current family. This hits home for me, a daughter of the Holocaust whose family perished in the camps. As always, you can stay home and write in your pjs and slippers. As always, if you enroll you will receive 3 prompts a day on Bloodline/Family (every other day) for 20 days. As always, you will write 1,000 words on a prompt of your choosing and send it to me every other day. Please join us. You can PM me for details – Linda Schreyer – or post here.

Dear Writers,

The last Slipper Camp – MINDFULNESS – took us into the election and past it. Twelve writers wrote at a heightened time, a critical time in our lives and the life of this country. I don’t need to remind any of us about that.

Like a beautiful sand castle that’s washed away by the next wave, our lives changed in a moment on November 8th. Every Slipper Camp writer who wrote on the 30 prompts about MINDFULNESS said it was an enormously positive, grounding, helpful and, for some, a lifechanging experience to be writing at that time.

In the past month I’ve searched within and without to find the topic of the next Slipper Camp. I finally settled on FREEDOM. Please click on the photo above. It helped me to decide on that as our topic.

I can’t think of anything more relevant about which to write 10,000 words in January. FREEDOM. We’ll be writing on Martin Luther King Day, the March on Washington and the Inauguration. We’ll be writing about FREEDOM from many different angles. I’m already creating the 30 prompts we’ll be using and hope you’ll be writing along with me. FREEDOM. Don’t you love the ring of that word?

WHAT IS SLIPPER CAMP?

SLIPPER CAMP is an online writing class. It’s open to only 10 writers who will receive 3 illustrated prompts about FREEDOM every OTHER morning for 20 days along with daily writing tips and coaching suggestions.

If you join you’ll be writing 1,000 words (2 pages) on 1 of the 3 daily prompts and sending them to me by midnight every OTHER day. Whenever I get your words I’ll read them and let you know I got them. At the end of Slipper Camp we’ll set a one-hour call to talk about your writings.

Hundreds of writers have taken this structured online writng course over the past years. The most common comment I hear is that the combination of structure and accountability yields good writing. Books, screenplays, a play, two novels and numerous published articles have been generated in Slipper Camps.

If you want to join Slipper Camp please email me at pravina@aol.com (or join the facebook event here) and we’ll send you details. Starts January 15. Ends February 2. Limited to 10 writers, 5 spaces are taken already.
