You are afraid of what people might think or say
Your dream ends here.
You want to write a book
You don’t know or where to begin
There are things you know and care about
You are hesitant to say them out loud
You are afraid of what people might think or say.
You say to yourself, “I am willing to feel the discomfort, embrace the fear and do it anyway.”
Your dream begins here!
And You Don’t Have To Do It Alone!
I have assisted thousands of people find their voice on the page for over 30 years.
Here are some of the comments I’ve heard over the years.
“I can’t write.”
“I can’t spell.”
“I’m not good enough.”
“Lots of people have written about my topic already.”
“Who am I to write a book? I don’t have a degree or anything.”
“How can I tell the truth about THAT!”
“What if people hate it?”
Dozens of my students who started out with these comments and other concerns have gone on to become successful published authors. Others have simply shown themselves that can, indeed write. And what they say matters.
My expertise is in listening. Listening with reverence.
I hear the trepidation that comes from expressing one’s voice out loud. The many fears and doubts that would have us put down our pens forever.
“Junie, it seems so simple and natural when you do it, but I don’t know anyone who hears and says back so clearly when I read my writing or speak my truth. You are the mirror who shines a light in the darkness just when I’ve convinced myself to give up, again. Thank you.
~ Susan Beach
I also hear the enthusiasm and joy that comes from expressions such as these:
“I can do this!”
“I AM a writer!”
” I love what I have written.”
” I can’t believe that just came out of my pen.”
“I had no idea what I was going to write.”
“I feel so much better.”
“I have so much more clarity.”
“I have a direction.”
Mostly, I hear, “Thank you!”
Junie, you hear us until we hear ourselves. You love us until we believe in ourselves. You play with us until we start to play. Your example helps me find my voice and my way to serve and love and to believe I can live my dream as well. Thank you! ~ Katya M.
Many of us lost our true voice at an early age and have spent a lifetime stifling our words, or living in ways that do not express our truth, our joy, and our passion.
If you have a book in you and are serious about writing it, then join us!
If you are someone who just wants to see if you can write or reignite your passion for writing, please join us.
Not everyone wants to publish something.
Whether you do or whether you don’t … it’s the process with which I work.
It’s where you want to be. Not at the destination, but in love with the evolution of your words as they grow into poetry, books, or whatever the muse births from your pen.
It is from this place, that the sweet whisperings of your soul meet you on the page. And something shifts.
You begin to stand taller.
And one day you will notice that your voice on the page has become your voice in the world.
Junie Swadron has the ability to listen and hear beyond the words, always honouring your own. She gives honest and relevant feedback, teaches writing skills that encourage your authentic voice to reveal itself, building confidence and passion for what you are writing. You surpass what you believed you were capable of.
~ Harvey Baker
The Authors’ Support Group has been a very nurturing environment to hatch my fledgling play and gradually take the steps to learn to fly. A great environment to meet others of like mind.
~ Amy Robertson
Your love, friendship, advice and support encouraged me to finally birth this work of fiction, so long in gestation.
~ Julia Joldersma
My “Victoria Bench by Bench” writings started before the book was even considered. Junie Swadron’s workshops nudged me back into a habit of writing. Junie’s special talent for facilitating writing groups pulled the words out of me. I started writing, not only for myself, but to share with others.
~ Rebecca Kennel
Please stay tuned for the next date for this amazing event when we can meet in person again.
