About Your Guides…
In 2016, lifelong friends Jennifer Browdy and Audrey Kalman conceived of a workshop using 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 began teaching together, first in person and then virtually. 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.
In 2022, we launched an exciting new community where we offer the workshop series along with a variety of practical and inspirational classes and the opportunity to connect with other writers. Join us!
