Claim Your Joy-update.jpg

It’s time to celebrate 2021, look ahead to 2022, and ring in a whole new year of writing!

- Who do you want to be as a writer?
- What’s your biggest dream?
- How do you want your writing to impact the world?
- How can you set up your life to do the writing you want to do?

It’s time to get excited about your story ideas, elevate your view of your future, and
spend time with other writers who will cheer you on.

“Claim Your Joy for 2022” will reconnect you with the sheer deliciousness of the
creative process—and give you tips and strategies to make the coming year your most
productive and joyful one yet.

Claim Your Joy for 2022 is one of the most important holiday gifts you can give yourself.

Think “magic meets mojo,” and you’ve got a glimpse of what this course is all about.
We’ve planned four hours of inspiration, motivation, writing, encouragement and
community—all during the quiet break between the holidays.

It’s the perfect way to keep the good cheer going. You’ll be spending time with other
people who understand why the words, “I am a writer” are so sacred to you. What better
gift could you give yourself this year?

Plus, your two instructors are doing some dreaming of their own, coming up with extra
surprises and twists to give this two-evening class more than a bit of holiday magic.

Amy Ferris is the godmother of writing prompts and will instantly take you to the heart
of who you are as a writer. She’ll affirm you and your dreams so you can start 2022 with
new confidence and clarity.

Debra Engle is all about joy and clearing out old patterns and fears that keep you stuck.
She’ll guide you to a new way of seeing and experiencing the joy in your writing—and
your life—every single day.

Pick out a special journal, because there's plenty of writing ahead. 

The best way to get excited about writing is ... to write! That's why we’ll give you lots of prompts and chances to share during the class. Plus, we’ll include...

- Visualizations and guided meditations to help you imagine your future.
- Exercises to get clear about what you want to write and why.
- Ways to commit to your writing so you’ll follow through.
- Practical tips for setting up a writing practice to fulfill your goals in 2022.

By the time the class is over, we want you to have a joy journal that will motivate you
well into the future. So please choose a favorite journal to use for your Claim Your Joy
writing. And go ahead—start filling it with quotes, pictures, poems and other reminders
of the writing magic inside you.

Four hours, two instructors, unlimited joy.

The schedule is simple:

Amy and Debra will co-teach both evenings, December 28 and 29. Join us as we celebrate your biggest dreams and desires and get your writing life on
track—with joy!—for 2022.
