Event Details

    •    You want to leave behind the stories of your life for your kids or grandkids.
    •    You want to finally finish that novel you’ve been working on for 9 years.
    •    You're a poet who has lost her muse in the piles of laundry.
    •    You used to journal, but don't any longer - and want to again.
    •    You have written "WRITE MORE" on every New Year's Resolution list for many years.

Up until now you have started and stopped dozens of times.  You’ve taken a tentative step forward, but shrunk away in a sea of self doubt or in the chaos of daily life.

You want to finally develop a consistent, sustainable, daily writing practice that feels great, helps you see life more clearly, forces you to pay attention in new ways — but you can’t.

Until now.

That’s what VerbTribe is for.  It’s for the writer who is committed to the task, but needs help and support to get there. It is for the writer who wants to be more mindful and intentional--who wants to write.

If you are committed to writing, let’s sit down and write together. Because a writer is the person who stays in the room, sits back down, and writes, no matter how fascinating the laundry just got.

My name is Patti Digh.  I’m a writer. It's taken me a very long time to own that, to say that.

Before I started this process, I didn’t even have a blog. Now I’ve been writing consistently at 37days for seven years and have written over 1,500 posts, 100+ published articles, and six books.

I'd like to share how I did that with you.

When you join the VerbTribe 37-day class, you won’t be asked to lock yourself in your room and write for five hours a day, but it does involve a daily commitment to create.  I’ll be here to guide the way. All you need to do is write and trust that it adds up. It truly does. Threads show themselves when you make sure that inspiration strikes every morning at 9am or every evening at 9pm — your schedule, your way, but writing consistently is what members of the VerbTribe do.

We’re going to focus on process, not product. We’re going to focus on writing as a verb. The act of writing. The sitting down, the pen to paper or fingers to keyboard. Only then we can focus on form, content, voice. Each are vital. You can know everything there is to know about writing–but if you’re not cultivating a writing practice, it won’t help.

Together, we’ll dive into the art of writing. We’ll explore ways to stop making excuses and get writing. I’ll be your writing coach, mentor, and nudger.

We’re going to do this for 37 days at a time–because I believe you can change your life in 37 days. In fact, I know you can.

This class is 37 days long.

After 37 days in the VerbTribe you will have:
    •    A clear understanding of the patterns that have stopped you from writing in the past
    •    The capacity to write each and every day (intention) -- regardless of what is going on in your daily life (circumstance)
    •    Tools to improve both your writing process and product
    •    A clear view of what you long to say in the world
    •    A community of peers to stay in touch with as support for each other
    •    A way into your unique voice

What you get:
    •    My attention, encouragement, and expertise as the author of seven books, including the bestsellers, Life is a Verb and Creative is a Verb.
    •    Provocative, imagination-busting daily writing prompts – every single day for the duration of the time you’re enrolled.
    •    A structure for writing–and accountability.
    •    Three 75-minute group workshop calls for writing workshop, reviews, and coaching on Tuesdays: September 17, October 1, October 15  from 7:30-8:45pm Eastern. While much of the class takes place in the online classroom, these calls are important to the course. They will be recorded, but you are urged to mark your calendar and be there live if at all possible.
    •    Recordings of every call for you to listen to on your schedule.
    •    Members-only private group on Facebook for community support and further feedback from me for the duration of the class (37 days). We will host 1-2 online "chats" via Facebook during our time together as well.
   
What I ask you to bring:
    •    Commitment to developing a sustainable writing practice.
    •    Commitment to doing the work.
    •    Commitment to reading the work of others and learning how to workshop them constructively.
    •    Commitment to your own voice.
    •    Commitment to showing up–fully.
    •    Commitment to never apologizing for your work–and never making excuses.

This online class runs from September 12 - October 18, 2013

Life is short. Write accordingly.
