Our Circle


Each meeting of our Motivational Writing Circle will follow this format:

  1. Each writer will read aloud up to 750 words (depending on attendance) while the rest of the circle listens deeply.
  2. The writer who has just read will respond to these questions:
    • How do you feel about what you just read?
    • Did you hear anything new or different?
    • Would you like specific input from our circle?
  3. Valerie will respond directly to the writer’s replies and the circle will help each writer bring clarity to her or his intentions for moving forward.

Depending on the number of writers present,  there might be time to do a freewrite. There will be flexibility about whether any remaining time is devoted to writing or discussion.
