ANNOUNCING THE AUGUST-SEPTEMBER 2021 INDIAN SUMMER WRITING WORKSHOP!
A desire to learn more and to establish a more dedicated and structured way to write more is ALL that’s “required” for the Workshop! The participants generally bring a wide range of sensibilities, approaches, demographics, and levels of expertise. Some are Catholic, many are not. Some have never seriously written before, nor shown their work to another human being. Others have been published. The emphasis is not so much on the technical aspects of writing–although in the course of giving and receiving notes each week, those aspects are definitely covered–but rather the spiritual: enlarging our hearts, horizons and souls.
I’ve come to love the serendipity of each group–a tightly-knit, supportive community of eight weeks in which we’re invited to stretch, explore, and grow. All are most welcome.

Heather’s Writing Workshop dropped in my lap in such a manner that I can only describe as, Divine Providence; after years of delaying an inner prompting to write, her 8-week course gave me the confidence I needed to begin my journey as a new writer!
Ms. King’s experience and love for the craft and art of writing preceded her, but what struck me the most was the length to which she nurtured all of us for the duration of the Workshop. Heather approached each student with a profound tenderness, sensitivity, encouragement, and generosity of spirit that spilled over into each one of us, creating a safe space it seemed we all needed.
I highly recommend Heather King’s Writing Workshop to writers of all levels, and at all stages in the development of their work!

When I first heard of Heather’s writing workshop I thought, “I wish!” I desperately needed something, but I didn’t think Heather’s workshop would be possible for me. It was a financial commitment, but more than that, it was a time commitment. I brought it up to my wife, fully expecting her to shoot down the idea. Instead, she said she thought I should do it. I was floored… and very grateful. You see, I’m a writer who has been writing for years, but I’ve been stuck for the last two or three years. Over the last decade I’ve authored a book, contributed to other books, and have been published in various periodicals (including my own monthly column for three years), and created weekly content for podcasts and radio. But the last few years I have been in a rut. Stuck. In short, I’ve been a frustrated writer… frustrated because I wasn’t writing. One of the things I hoped to receive out of the workshop was new fire for writing, a reignited passion for writing. And on this point, Heather’s workshop did not disappoint. The experience of meeting weekly with other writers for the sole purpose of helping each other with both the art and craft of writing was… well, priceless. I am so grateful to have been a part of the workshop, and I look forward to participating again in a future workshop. Thank you, Heather, for putting your gifts at our service and for always calling us onward and higher!
