Writer’s Block Party: Support Services for Word Creatives
Hello Illuminous Friends,
I offer you a veritable buffet! I’ve solidified a range of options from Illuminous Flux’s writer support services tentacle- Writer’s Block Party. If you are a writer of any make or model, you may find something here to support your practice wherever you are in your creative journey.
WBP In-Real-Life Meet Ups
Printable Service Description: WBP IRL meetups
There’s support, community, discussion, experimentation, spirited conversation and sharing and there’s absolutely no pressure- Writer’s Block Party In-Real-Life Meet Ups are here for all your motivational, inspirational writer needs. WBP Meet Ups are gentle, respectful, fun, interesting and invigorating. We incorporate themes and examples and the individual experiences of our participants. Here are a few links to agendas for past WBP In-Real-Life Meet Ups, to get some of the flavor although no two are alike.
What WBP In-Real-Life offers:
-strategies geared toward making/keeping our own commitments around writing practice
-a strictly voluntary sharing policy for comfort and ease of participation on whatever level feels right, at any given time
-information about relevant community events and resources
-ideas and outside perspectives on our individual writing projects in a compassionate, “on the same team” kind of way
-discussion about the creative process and sharing our diverse experiences
-generation of plans about next steps and possible directions for ourselves creatively
-stretching our writing muscles, trying new things, and thinking about things in new ways in a totally supportive, experimental atmosphere
-connecting with others about our craft
Do any of these needs resonate with you? Can you think of a few friends that might want to join you?
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to set a date, or just to get more information. I am flexible with times/days/locations and I can tailor sessions to the group’s particular needs.
Writer’s Block for Babies
Printable Service Description: WBB
Ok, not really “babies” but for young ones. Through Illuminous Flux, I am offering themed programs for children which include stories read aloud and crafts and other related activities. I am open to pretty much any theme under the sun. Here is an example of a program proposal that I used for the pre-school set: Airplane Story Time
These programs are individualized according to interest, age, and ability.
They keep in mind developmental milestones, pre-literacy skills, sensory integration, fine/gross motor skill development, positive social interaction, and caregiver participation and education.
I am well versed in multiple intelligences, special needs accommodations, and group facilitation. I have two decades of homeschooling and support group leadership experience, as well as working with families through the Early Intervention Program.
But mostly, I like to have fun learning about stuff and reading books to kids.
I can come to homes and community spaces, as part of an event or club, or part of a larger organization like schools or libraries.
If you have a little one under school age come see a Writer’s Block for Babies story time session at Ovid or Interlaken Libraries!
