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!

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

Slipper Camp – Times of My Life

unnamed (1)

My next Slipper Camp starts June 8th.
The topic: TIMES OF MY LIFE

In this online writing Slipper Camp, we will be writing about times we’ve loved, lost and longed for. Minutes light and dark and times that are/were just plain ordinary. We will be writing about “’loving every minute of our lives” and about times when we couldn’t do that. Minutes we spent in a tropical paradise with an open book and our morning coffee. Minutes we spent waiting for someone who never came.

You will be prompted to write about it all.

Natalie Goldberg wrote: “Our lives are both ordinary and mythical. We live and die, age beautifully or full of wrinkles. We wake in the morning, buy yellow cheese and hope we have the money to pay for it. At the same time, we have these magnificent hearts that pump through all sorrow and all winters we are alive on this earth. We are important and our details are worthy to be recorded.”

Come write with us. You are important and your details are worthy to be recorded.

SLIPPER CAMP TIMES OF MY LIFE:
It will be the same format: 10 writers will receive 3 illustrated prompts about TIMES OF MY LIFE every OTHER morning for 20 days along with daily writing tips and coaching suggestions.

Tuition: PM me for Cost
Limit: 10 writers
Starts: June 8th

Lasts: 20 days (10 days of writing)

Please let me know if you’re interested. Payment secures your spot.

18620919_10154365723495957_6723926101871604873_o

Due to popular demand, Slipper Camp – Mothers and Daughters – is back. It starts Mother’s Day (May 10th) and ends on 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.

Slipper Camp: Home

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
