Intro to Adoptee Writer’s Experience
The Introduction to the Adoptee Writer’s Experience (AWE) aims to give adoptees confidence in writing their adoption stories. Whether you write for yourself or desire to share your writing with the world, you’ll find inspiration through AWE.
During the Introduction to the Adoptee Writer’s Experience, we’ll spend time together brainstorming topic ideas and learning how to focus our writing on individual goals. We’ll cover strategies and techniques for developing a writing habit and dive into the reasons for doubts, fears, and imposter syndrome, all-too-common forms of resistance that show up in creative work. Each session will include discussing, writing, and sharing our written work.
The Introduction to the Adoptee Writer’s Experience strives to create a safe space for adoptees to explore writing about their adoption stories. Each session takes place via Zoom, and due to the intimate nature of personal story writing and discussion, all participants must appear on video for the entire session.
We have two sessions starting June 1st:
Thursday mornings (10:00-11:30 am Central Time): 6/1, 6/8 & 6/15
Thursday evenings (6:00-7:30 pm Central Time): 6/1, 6/8, & 6/15
Registration opens in May.
Students receive access to the online AWE Community and receive email support for the class duration. These sessions are only available to female-identifying adoptees.
Space is limited to ensure individual attention. When you register, you are reserving a space unavailable to anyone else; therefore, we cannot offer refunds. To reserve your spot, please send the class fee to me via PayPal ([email protected]) using the goods & services option for sending money.
Alternatively, you can also register here.
Let’s get writing!
