Sedona Wordsmith

Sedona Wordsmith is a grassroots cooperative publishing house and a resource for writers.  We hold the 2-day writing retreats and the half-day “mini-jumpstarts” monthly.  We also offer individual coaching, editing, and publishing support.

I am here to help you:

Birth Your Book – Birth Yourself!

Your book lives already, fully formed, at the core of your being and clamors for release.  Jump-start the creative process in a protective and dynamic circle of vision and imagination.

Workshops are normally held on the 2nd weekend of the month in West Sedona or Clarkdale, AZ  9:00a.m. – 5:00p.m.  Pre-registration required

We harness the combined energies of the working group to propel you and your project forward.  We employ “automatic writing” techniques, targeted meditation, guided imagery and breathwork to unleash your intrinsic creative energy. You will have two individualized coaching sessions and go home with an action plan and the secrets for finishing your project.  You will receive a copy of the 10 Secrets for Dissolving the Obstacles to Writing Your Book.
