Slipper Camp: Bloodline/Family

unnamed (3)

My next online writing Slipper Camp – Bloodline – begins on the day after Father’s Day, June 21st. And in honor of the holiday, this Slipper Camp will feature prompts about Fathers and Daughters as well as Mothers and Sons. 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.

If you want to join Slipper Camp please email me at lspravina21@gmail.com and I’ll send you details. Starts June 21. Ends July 9.

THANK YOU

Slipper Camp: Mothers and Daughters

18620919_10154365723495957_6723926101871604873_o

Due to low attendance, I’ve decided to cancel Grandmas & Grandkids this year and offer Mothers and Daughters in honor of Mother’s Day coming up.

The Fourth Annual Mothers and Daughters Slipper Camp starts on the day after Mother’s Day (May 10th) and ends May 28th. Many mothers and daughters have taken this Slipper Camp together and loved it.

I was inspired to create this Slipper Camp when I studied this photo of my mother and me. At three months old I’m already trying to crawl out of her arms. Eager to see the world. Unwilling to be contained. My mother smiles beatifically, unaware of the restless soul in her arms…

We’ll be writing about ourselves, our mothers and/or mother figures, our daughters-biological or chosen – nieces, goddaughters, stepdaughters or any young woman we mentor. We’ll be exploring the relationship between women of different generations.

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 (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. Email me for details at lspravina21@gmail.com.

Only open to the first ten writers who sign up. Please DM me for tuition as payment will secure your spot.

Slipper Camp – the secrets we carry

14045671_10153633106835957_234975491548260101_n

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.

Limit: 10 writers
Starts: March 22nd ends April 9th
Please let me know if you’re interested in joining us.
Payment secures your spot.

Slipper Camp – Impermanence

What a nerve-wracking time! I’ve been searching for the next topic for my online Slipper Camp but everything I thought of, I ended up rejecting. Not deep enough. Not relevant enough for today’s world. Then I came upon this photo of a majestic sand castle created at the water’s edge. I marveled at the non-attachment of building such a creation, knowing it would be destroyed by the next wave. That will be the topic of the next online writing Slipper Camp – Impermanence. To live our lives in every moment. To build, to love, knowing that life can change in a moment. Like a beautiful sand castle that’s washed away by the next wave. If you want to write about that online with me, please PM me and we’ll send you details.

Starts November 12th. Limited to 10 writers, five spaces taken already. LOVE!

Slipper Camp – Freedom

image1

Dear Writers,

FREEDOM 2020 will be my next online writing Slipper Camp (Starts August 3rd, ends 20 days later.)

FREEDOM. We’ll be writing at a heightened time, a critical time in our lives and the life of this country and the world. We’ll be writing about freedoms we’ve lost and those we still celebrate; freedoms that are 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. Especially now!!
NOTE: A portion of every tuition will be donated to https://joebiden.com/ With 10 Slipper Campers it adds up to a tidy sum!!!

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 10 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.

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

– Slipper Camp fills up in a heartbeat so please jump in if this speaks to you. THANK YOU
