General Information

WRITING SPIRIT, THE SCHOOL with Lynn Andrews is designed as a two-year program and runs for two consecutive 10-month sessions with weekly reading and writing assignments, as well as teachings and other reading assignments sent out to participants by email.

The school curriculum is based on Lynn’s book Writing Spirit.
Each two-year session begins July 1 and runs through April 30, two years later, with breaks in May and June each year..

Each year/session will be all about your writings through the workbook and your own work culminating in a wonderful annual weekend gathering with Lynn and your fellow writers. The location of these gathering has not yet been determined, but will likely be held in Arizona.
Lynn will be critiquing some of your selected writings throughout the school year.

There will be a number of conference calls with Lynn as well as private and group calls and video chats with your mentor over the school year to answer questions and discuss ideas and concerns that may be arising as you work through the exercises.

Writing Spirit, the School is direct and abstract, elaborate and “no frills”. It is designed to open you and stretch your writing, moving you like a ‘guide book’ of trails through the rugged mountains. The language in these exercises is intended to shake you up and get your attention.

It is crafted with a shamanic energy designed to move you in and out of your own way as you discover your writing self. It is about the energy of art; for instance, “WRITE. INHALE. SEE”… you will find sentences like these which are single words or maybe a … (dot… dot… dot…), a dreamy pause or a thought of a different kind.  Follow the energy.  This is a treasure hunt for creative soul… YOUR WRITING SPIRIT!

 Year One:
This school is based on Lynn’s book Writing Spirit and together, we will travel around all four corners of this book as you take your first hero’s journey in search of your Writing Spirit.  You will have a workbook to write with through a series of exercises, assignments, stories, poetry and prose.  You will be reading and writing, writing and writing…  This school will help you unite with something deep within you, far more passionate and important than a best seller… you will unite with the art, the mysterious living art within you; your Writing Spirit.

Year Two:
You will take a hero’s journey again, your quest to find the creative outlet for your words; your first book, story, song… your voice. This time you will take this journey WITH your Writing Soul as your companion. You will make this trip around the Lightning Flash Wheel of the Twisted Hair Storyteller using another workbook of assignments for reading and writing your way through the year. The same shamanic energy of the hunt is woven through this second year and you will stalk your words to discover, develop, design and manifest the treasure that will be yours at the end of your quest.
