Welcome to the Summer Writing Intensive

Well, hello there!

I’m delighted that you chose to join us for the Summer Writing Intensive. The course will run for six weeks, from Monday 3rd July until Friday 11th August.

Beginning on Monday 3rd July, you’ll receive a message in your inbox every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Each email will contain a coaching or writing lesson.

Each week, you’ll also receive new writing exercises. These exercises are not mandatory; you will add them to your personal library of resources for working on your story, novel, memoir or non-fiction project. You’ll choose your own adventure!

The focus of this program is to help you create a writing routine that works for you. {We know that one size does not fit all. There are many ways for you to find time and space to write.} We’ll also set up a weekly accountability check-in for writers to share their writing successes from the previous week and their goals for the upcoming week.

This program also includes:

  • Membership in a secret and closed Facebook group for discussion and sharing of your writing
  • A weekly Facebook Live call hosted by Monna inside our FB group. You bring your questions!
  • An hour-long coaching session with me during July or August 2017. You’ll choose when you’d like to have the call and what you’d like us to focus on
  • A guest class with Damien Pitter, MFA in Creative Writing from University of British Columbia
  • Lots of gorgeous support from Monna

Here’s what you’ll need for the course:

  • Laptop/iPad/phone
  • Journal and pen (I like a journal that’s small enough that I can carry it with me at all times)
  • Facebook account. Note: we will share our work with each other in a secret and private Facebook group. This means that ONLY people enrolled in this course will be able to see your photos, your writing, and your comments.

A note about receiving my messages:
The program emails are sent by me via Mad Mimi. If you have never received an email from me before, the message may end up in your Spam folder. You can resolve this by making me (monnamcd@gmail.com) a contact in your email or checking your spam folder. Thanks so much!

Please note that during the week before the course, I’ll be adding each participant as a friend on Facebook so that I can add you to our secret and private group. If I have difficulty finding you on FB, I’ll send you an email.

I’ll also contact you to schedule a coaching call.

I’m looking forward to taking this adventure with you!
