Slipper Camp: Bloodline/Family

unnamed (3)

My next online writing Slipper Camp – Bloodline – begins on the day after Father’s Day, June 21st. 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

As Mother’s Day approaches I think about my own mother and her mother before her. The grandmother I never knew, the gentle woman who died in Auschwitz.

My mother, who escaped with my father, became a motherless daughter when she was only 24. She never got to say goodbye to her mother. And she never got over the loss.

I was raised by a woman with a deep motherwound. A wound she tried to heal by pouring her love into my brother and me. When that didn’t heal her grief she became a painter who poured her sorrow and joy onto canvases of color and light.

I was inspired to create MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS ONLINE WRITING SLIPPER CAMP when I studied this photo of my mother and me.

At three months old I’m trying to leap out of her arms. Eager to see the world. Unwilling to be contained. Looking for something out there, something my mother can’t give me.

My mother smiles tentatively. Her eyes are looking somewhere else, too. Somewhere she longs to be. We can’t connect.

That set the template of our entire relationship.

Five years ago I created 30 illustrated prompts for Mothers and Daughters Online Writing Slipper Camp, a 20 day course. Every year, I rewrite the prompts. Every year I’m blown away by the writings I receive.

I hope you will be one of ten writers who sign up for Mothers and Daughters Online Writing Slipper Camp. It begins the day after Mother’s Day, May 9th, and ends May 28th.

– You will receive three illustrated prompts every other day.

– You will send me 1,000 words on whatever prompt you choose.

– I will read everything you write.

– By the end of Slipper Camp you will have written 10,000 words.

– Then we will talk about your writings.

– It’s only open to the first ten writers who sign up.

– Please PM me for tuition cost and details.

– Payment secures your spot.

** Mothers and Daughters Online Writing Slipper Camp is a fundraiser for mothers and daughters in Ukraine. A portion of every tuition will go to www.Care.com – they are on the ground in Ukraine.

love, Slipper Camp

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.

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

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
