At the first ever GVWA meeting, we’ll be running a workshop! Super excited!
Greater Vancouver Writers Association, Romance and Beyond, is the new incarnation of a well established writers group, the Greater Vancouver Chapter of the RWA – Romance Writers of America. We have disaffiliated from that larger, international organisation and have become our own nonprofit.
Vision Boards for Writers 2018
facilitated by Jan Irving & Michele Fogal
This workshop will touch on the concepts of: the law of attraction, visualization, inspired action, and manifestation. We’ll share a bit about how these big ideas have impacted creative people’s lives and will also facilitate a hands on vision board making session. As a new year begins, we hope this will be a fun uplifting experience, to imagine and seed our best next chapters, together as writers. NOTE about Materials: We will bring poster boards for everyone, and would appreciate people bringing magazines or cuttable print materials—preferably with images! If you’d like to create a vision book instead of a board, please bring an empty journal or binder with paper. Your favourite scissors are a good idea too!
Materials – what people need to bring for the workshop
We will bring poster boards for everyone, and would appreciate people bringing any and all magazines, or cuttable print materials – preferably with images! If participants want to create a “vision book” instead of a board, please bring an empty journal or binder with paper. You can do both board and book, but time will be limited.
Bio – Michele Fogal
Michele loves vision boards, meditations and finding ways to talk to our deepest selves. When we get specific about what we want in the future, we allow ourselves to open up and tap into our creative source, both as writers and as people.
Michele received a BFA in Creative Writing and then set aside dreams of being a writer for more practical endeavours. Writing, however, had other plans. After battling doubt and writer’s block for years, Fogal is now finding ways to include creativity as a part of her long term life approach, while maintaining her family relationships, her household, her business and her sanity! She is the author of 3 novels, published by 2 presses.
Bio – Jan Irving
Jan learned to make vision boards during a life and death health crisis. Using visualization and the law of attraction, she found that her books were not the only story that she could become empowered to write. We can become the heroines of our lives… and careers.
Author of over forty books and novellas, Jan Irving has written historicals, westerns, contemporaries, suspense, multicultural romance, and gay romance. Currently she is working on young adult, romantic urban fantasy and even a memoir. You can find Jan on her facebook where she shares both writing news and her latest creative projects: facebook.com/janice.irving
Hope to see you there!
