Butt in Seat Writing Group - Weekly

Give yourself the gift of focused writing time in a supportive enviromnent that includes coaching, accountability - and fun!

If you live on the Western Slope of Colorado, in or near Grand Junction, join Melody Jones in her weekly writing group.

  • Feeling as if writer’s block is that unwelcome houseguest that never leaves and eats all the ice cream?
  • Feeling SCATTERED?
  • Want to connect with fellow writers in a creative and supportive environment?

It’s time to get your butt in a seat and write!

This writing group meets together for two hours Monday evenings from 6-8 p.m. Mountain Time in Grand Junction, Colorado 81501 (exact address provided upon registration).

Worried about the time frame? Two hours is the sweet spot! It allows us 2-3 focused writing stints, plus sharing time for all participants. You are encouraged to read in this safe space.

Our time together includes a variety of writing prompts and writing exercises, tailored as needed to group tone, goals, and participation. Coaching is included.

We write from a range of perspectives and genres, just to mix it up and keep those creative juices going. Group writers are encouraged to use these devices to work on their own projects during group time.

To help group participants make real writing progress, we’ll establish an accountability routine.

Since we are writing from the heart, our work is raw and even vulnerable and so participants give only positive feedback and share the words or images that moved them about each writing piece. This is a safe and supportive environment. (Don’t worry – it’s not a critique group.)

There are three payment options to choose from. All details at the website link.
