5 guided writing sessions, one each day:

  1. All writing, All the time. Camera OFF, inner life ON. This class is designed for the quiet focus that allows you to bring your soul to the page

  2. Class will start with a short meditation to center, ground, and visualize the story aspect we will focus on each day

  3. Meditation is followed by a lengthy guided writing with Joan’s prompts

  4. Each day brings new tools, exercises, and guided writings to drive you to the page

  5. Class is designed to allow you to flow into your writing day, so if you can carve out extra time after the class formally ends, DO

Whether you are working on a novel, episodic, film, commercial, YouTube or Insta content - WRITE THROUGH THE CHANGE 3 will help you get deep into the core of your story, the complexity of your characters, and the structural clarity of your scene. Push forward into new understandings of your craft, your stories and your Self.
