MakeHerSpace

In the communion of the shared creative space, where quiet ones and always-abuzz ones pull up seats at the table together, beauty happens. True stuff gets said, comes flying across the page in words that surprise even the ones who wrote them.

This is what MakeHerSpace is about: making space for women to make.

But not supper.
Not the beds.
Not another phone call,
another trip to the grocery store,
yet another appointment.

Not that kind of making.

Instead, MakeHerSpace makes space for you to make writing happen. In a noisy world, to make space for listening. To turn what blooms in your beehive mind into brightness on the page. To make mischief, creatively. To make truth and beauty as an argument against the dark.

You’re made to create.

Claim your space, and in words, with others cheering you on, come make with MakeHerSpace.

The Living Room

If you’re a woman who loves words, if you have a story to tell, if you want to play on the page while gaining a little practice, if you’re looking for creative exercises and literary prompts without the burden of deadlines and homework, then welcome to The Living Room, a weekly two-hour writing group that meets in a cozy home setting. Led by writer and teacher Carla Funk, these sessions aim to widen your literary scope, deepen your creative practice, and add to your imaginative engagement with everyday life.

Whether you call yourself a writer or simply write on the sly, these sessions are designed to stoke your creativity and help you discover your own voice through the wild delights of writing from the truth and beauty of everyday life. Each week, you’ll come away with completed written work, some encouraging feedback on how to cultivate your writing, and the joy-buzz that comes with making space to create.
