Write on Mama!
…is a writing community for mothers of children of all ages. Once a month we provide a space for you to write and think and some writing prompts to get you back into a writing flow. We spend time reading to each other at the end of the session, which is always optional. This is a group for every kind of writer, from journal keepers to novelists and everything in between. This is a place for all parents and primary care-givers.
We meet on the first Wednesday of the month on Zoom at 7pm with a special guest who leads the prompts and talks about their writing. On the other Wednesdays, we have a prompt session at 8pm. Please hop on our mailing list to stay in touch : hit ‘subscribe’ above. AND if the link is finicky, feel free to email Laura Repo @ email@example.com.
If you can. Donate to help with the costs: $10 $15 $20…and, if you’re short of funds, enjoy the sessions for FREE!

This session is with Nina K Moore, a Toronto-based Anxiety Coach. Her mission is to help others better understand, minimize, prevent—and thrive with—their anxiety. Nina’s work is based on her extensive teaching background as well as her lived experience of learning to live—well—with an anxiety disorder. Writing is, for her, a sacred tool for wellness.
Nina says, “We’ll write to our anxiety and to the coziness in our lives. Through a series of writing prompts, we’ll invite them both in for tea.”

The December 2020
This session is with writer, Jaclyn Desforges. Here’s what she has planned for us:
“Picture books are short, but they can be intimidating to write. Never fear: In this hour-long seminar with writer Jaclyn Desforges, you’ll learn how to apply techniques from other genres to writing picture books. Whether you’re a poet, a novelist, or completely new to the writing world, this session will offer the guidance you need to get started.”
Jaclyn Desforges is the author of a picture book, Why Are You So Quiet? (Annick Press, 2020), and a forthcoming poetry collection with Palimpsest Press. She is an MFA candidate at the University of British Columbia, and her writing has been featured in literary magazines across Canada. She’s currently writing a book of short stories with the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
