Write with me!
“Abby’s classes are a refuge for those of us who long to put our lives into words. She has a special gift for creating and holding space that feels both safe and stimulating. The poems and passages that she selects for close reading are always deeply relevant and moving, and Abby is a truly thoughtful and supportive guide in our discussions. She offers plenty of time for writing, and her prompts are excellent — simple and open-ended. I love that she encourages us to write whatever comes up first, because it has led me to write about things I would otherwise “write off” as irrelevant or unimportant. Last but definitely not least, Abby is a truly skilled and practiced listener. The insights and reflections she offers on our writing are invaluable. The class has inspired me to write more than I have in many years, and it’s always such a treat to hear what the other women in the group are thinking and writing about too. I love Abby’s classes and highly recommend them to anyone interested in writing more!” —Helen, LA
“Classes with Abby are magical. Every week I am challenged and encouraged to go deeper. My writing has become stronger. Being in community with Abby and the other amazing women strengthens our sense of self, of each other, and our shared perspectives.” —Shoshana, LA
“The night before the first class, I was in bed thinking up all kinds of excuses I could use to withdraw. I feared I’d made a terrible mistake. I was terrified and cringing at what I thought would be an uncomfortable virtual experience with strangers. It only took one class to realize I had stumbled upon a gift. I can’t imagine my life without this class and these women I’ve come to know in a very intimate and unique way. I don’t know if I’ll ever get to meet them in person but our weekly meeting to write and share together has carried me through some dark and difficult moments of pandemic living. It also helped me dislodged some of the barriers that kept me immobile from pursuing creative exploration that has been missing from my life for many years.” —Allegra, Nova Scotia
