Join Kathy for a full-fledged writers' circle experience on November 7th.
Bring your favorite pen and notebook (or use your computer) and spend 90-minutes reconnecting to the writer that lives inside you. Kathy will guide you through the writers' circle in true Purple Ink Cafe style, starting with a grounding activity, then moving into writing time.
All you need to do is RSVP for the event. We will send you all the information you need to prepare and join us the day of the event. Seats are limited and we'll only send the invite to those who RSVP below.
Let's spend some time together writing, sharing, and reconnecting to our passion.
The Details... DATE: November 7, 2016 TIME: 3PM to 4:30PM Eastern WHERE: Online in a private virtual conference room WHAT TO EXPECT: - An introduction to The Purple Ink Cafe - Guided writing time - Connect with other writers - Time for celebrating your writing
Your website mentions a 5 week circle. Is this part of it? The free Kick-off Writers’ Circle is a stand-alone event. However you can continue for an additional 4 weeks starting July 25th for $89. You can sign up here.
Do I have to be a writer to join? Many aspiring and work-in-progress writers have trouble calling themselves a writer. The reality is that you become a writer by writing. When you enter our Zoom room you are a writer. You are welcomed and nurtured. You get to move at the pace that works best for you.
What technology do I need? We will be using Zoom - a free videoconferencing platform. It is compatible with Macs, PCs, smartphones and tablets that use Android or IOS systems. You will receive the link and meeting information when you register. Zoom will access your webcam. You can always turn this off but your experience will be enhanced when you can see all your fellow writers.
Will the sessions be recorded? The initial free kick-off session will be recorded but will not be made public. Just for me for my own review.
I’ve never done an online writing group before. How will it feel compared to a live group? One of the biggest benefits of a writing group is that you get to bond with other writers. They are your tribe and you will find a lovely level of comfort with them. Sharing virtual space with them may feel a little different in the beginning but it has been my experience that virtual groups connect and bond just as live groups do. And, just think of it. There are no geographical restrictions - you can meet writers from all over the country (maybe the world). And, you can “come as you are” from the comfort of your own home.
