In the world of work, your words matter. So often, women’s words remain unwritten and unspoken. If you want to affirm your identity and authenticity at work or advance a cause such as eliminating discrimination, addressing mental health issues or improving sustainability practices, the Brave Women Writers’ Circle will help your women find their voice and write a compelling case for change.
As an experienced author, writer and educator, the circle is led and facilitated by Carolyn Tate. With between 6 and 12 places per circle, the 12-week program is designed to guide each woman in bringing their writing project to life in a community of other women at work.
When you join the circle, you’ll receive a signed copy of Brave Women Write, a Writing Project Planner to gain clarity on your project, two mentoring sessions with me (one before we kick-off and a second one at six weeks), 12 x 1.5 hour Zoom gatherings (8am to 9.30am on Fridays), an invitation to a private chat group and attendance at a one-day closing circle in stunning Red Hill (optional but just a one-hour drive from Melbourne’s CBD).
During our time together, you’ll set your writing goals, gain clarity on your central idea and purpose for writing, set a structure and plan for your project, test your ideas with others for further ideation, share your writing for constructive feedback and advance your writing skills to become a better, bolder, braver writer.
The Brave Women Writers’ Circle is a great way for you to be kept accountable to achieve your writing goals with a courageous and compassionate group of women in your workplace.
The program is designed for women who yearn to write stories of change—no matter how big or small. Whether you want to write your own story to leave a legacy for other women or write about issues of diversity and inclusion at work, this circle is for you. Together, we will write about the issues that matter to women with clarity, courage, and conviction.
Participants can also book private time with me if desired. This could be used as a workshop to flesh out your idea and plan your project or a review of your writing with recommendations for improvement.
The Brave Women Writers’ Circle culminates in a one-day nature retreat at our enchanting farm in Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula. It’s here that we’ll celebrate our achievements, offer our reflections and set future intentions around the campfire. We’ll also enjoy a sumptuous farm-grown lunch together. (Red Hill is a rural area with rolling hills, native forests, wineries and bush walks.)
