We’re living through an unknown stage in our collective story. It isn’t easy, but as writers, we know how to do this.

Now is a good time to write and reflect.

I've opened this free Writing Through Uncertainty space for us to meet for daily freewriting and connection.

This isn’t a course, and there are no prerequisites or homework assignments. It’s for reflection, and it's for anyone who needs it.

Sign up to join.


This space is for you to:

  • Participate in a short, simple freewrite every day
  • Connect with other writers in a discussion forum
  • Write together as a family
  • Feel centred as everything around us changes
  • Find your balance, and use it to help stabilize others
  • Write through uncertainty

This is a free classroom space, open until April 19, 2020.
Open to everyone, including non-writers and young people.

Join us.

About Sarah Selecky Writing School

Sarah Selecky Writing School is an online creative writing school that approaches writing as an art, and also as a contemplative practice. We believe that skill comes from study, that inspiration comes from love, and that both are necessary.

The school started in 2011 with one downloadable course called Story Is a State of Mind, which has now evolved into a larger community—Sarah Selecky Writing School. That first program is now called the Story Course. Writers can advance their study by taking two more writing programs that are guided by that same foundation course: the Story Intensive and the Story Workshop.
