Write Where I Am Mentoring

Write Where I Am Mentoring

YOU’RE READY TO DEEPEN
YOUR WRITING PRACTICE
AND YOUR CRAFT

YOU’RE READY TO DEEPEN YOUR WRITING PRACTICE AND YOUR CRAFT

You’ve begun to integrate meditation and writing practice into your writing life, and it’s making a difference. The call to share your life experience through a memoir, wisdom book, essays, or blog is growing stronger.

But something is stopping you.

Maybe you put your loved ones’ needs before your own.

Or have trouble making time to write.

Or struggle with craft and how to put a piece together.

Or maybe you believe you’re not a good enough writer.

It’s time to get feedback on your writing from someone you trust, someone who will support you to write from where you are.

You’re ready to release what’s holding you back.
When you commit to writing about your life experience, you’ll face internal obstacles (fear, lack of confidence, procrastination) and external obstacles (finding time to write, limited knowledge of craft). Write Where I Am Mentoring helps you move through those challenges and guides you back home to your deepest self, so you can share your wisdom in writing.

With Write Where I Am Mentoring, you won’t be subjected to harsh critiques of your work. Instead, you will share your writing in a safe, non-judgmental space, and become clear about where you are, what’s working, what’s not working, and where to go next. You’ll receive gentle guidance for how to improve your craft and strengthen your writing process.

IS RIGHT FOR YOU IF

WRITE WHERE I AM MENTORING
IS RIGHT FOR YOU IF

  • You feel called to move from journaling and free writing to starting a wisdom writing project.
  • You’re ready to strengthen your craft and writing process.
  • You yearn to release what’s stopping you from sharing your wisdom through writing.
  • You’ve taken one e-course, workshop, or retreat with me before we work together. To get the most out of your mentorship, it’s best if you’re already familiar with the foundational Write Your Wise Way Home practices, especially sitting meditation and writing practice.

BENEFITS OF MENTORING

BENEFITS OF MENTORING

After your Write Where I Am Mentorship, you’ll walk away with a better understanding of where your writing is now and how to make it stronger. You’ll also learn how to read productively and intimately, so you can emulate the authors you admire. And you’ll have a plan for how to establish a regular Write the Wise Way Home routine that integrates sitting meditation, writing practice, and deep reading.

You’ll also gain a companion to walk beside you, someone to offer deep perspective and grounded encouragement, a champion of your calling who will teach you how to nurture and protect your writing life.

HOW IT WORKS

YOUR WRITE WHERE I AM MENTORSHIP INCLUDES THREE 75-MINUTE SESSIONS IN AUSTIN, OR BY ZOOM. EACH SESSION INCLUDES:
  • A short practice period of meditation and writing practice.
  • Working with internal and external obstacles that keep you from the page
    and from putting your work into the world.
  • Gentle feedback on 5-10 pages of your writing (what’s working, what could be improved, and concrete steps to make it stronger).
  • Reading from a list based on the areas of craft you want to develop.
  • Plans for creating and maintaining a regular writing practice.

WHY I MENTOR WISDOM WRITERS

The world needs your hard-earned wisdom more than ever.

I’m thrilled you’re ready to commit to bringing your whole self to the page, speak your truth, and claim your place in the lineage of writers. It gives me deep pleasure to see people moving towards their calling. It would be a privilege to guide you towards sharing your story.

Working one-on-one for a minimum of six weeks, we’ll make real progress on the inner and outer game of being a committed wisdom writer. You will learn to integrate writing into the life you have right now.

It is an honor to walk this road alongside you.

“I can’t even tell you what it has meant for me to have Saundra Goldman in my life. She is a wit, a brilliant teacher, a direct student of Natalie Goldberg, a badass feminist artist, an art historian, a writer, a mother, and so much more. I have been deeply grateful to have found someone who takes a contemplative approach to writing and living. I love her goofy laugh, fierce grace, incisive insights, and compassionate mentorship. With Saundra’s guidance I feel like I have finally begun the arduous, critically important process of retrieving my own creative soul.”
