About Your Guides…

In 2016, lifelong friends Jennifer Browdy and Audrey Kalman conceived of a workshop that would use birth as a metaphor for the writing process.

Combining Jennifer’s expertise as a memoirist and teacher with insights from Audrey’s work as a birth doula and writer, we taught our first workshop together in person at Book Passage in Corte Madera, California and then virtually for Shuffle Collective’s Weekend of Words.

Since then, we have taught at many venues and developed a series of finely crafted master classes as well as unique techniques for facilitating productive writers’ circles.

Our workshop series supports sustained engagement while also allowing participants the flexibility of joining any month or trying out a single session.

In 2022, we are further expanding by launching our exciting new community platform. Join us!
