The Auntie Way Writing Retreat: Build a Joyful, Productive Writing Habit!

The Auntie Way Writing Retreat was all that I needed and MORE! Every session was meaningful, intentional, and peacefully created for us to write with a collective. Having a collective, across lands and through Zoom, was a great experience for me to learn from others, be inspired to write, and complete writing goals. Thank you, Michelle for a beautiful gathering.

Description: Join the fabulous Auntie Way Writing Retreat! This nine week course led by Dr. Michelle M. Jacob meets for live sessions on Fridays at 10am-12pm Pacific (1-3pm Eastern). Benefit from writing with inspiring scholars in our structured writing retreat sessions. Access on demand coaching with Dr. Jacob during our live meetings. You’ll also enjoy weekly recorded lessons covering topics related to your specific writing questions and challenges. Registration includes year-long membership in the Anahuy Mentoring online platform to support your continued growth as a writer with year-round events.

Once again, participating in this writing workshop helped me complete a project that felt overwhelming (if not impossible) to me. In addition to getting my article, revisions, and proofs completed, I mapped out another writing project that is now well underway. I am so grateful for the supportive community and Michelle’s mentorship. I am writing so much more than before, and most importantly, I am now enjoying the process!
