Upcoming Events:

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. ūüėä

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!
