The waitlist is the only way to guarantee a seat in the 2024 workshops. Don't miss out!

The WORD RIVER is four months of community & accountability.

This is long-term support to help you sustain your writing practice.

Each RIVER is limited to 15 people.

Here’s how it works:

We meet on the first and third weeks of the month for 90-minutes by Zoom.

During our twice monthly sessions we will:

  1. Set writing goals/intentions
  2. Discuss questions about the writing process
  3. Write together using personalized prompts

"Sarah’s WORD CAVES and WORD RIVERS are my writing church, the sanctuary I return to when I need to refuel and recharge so I can go it alone again. It’s not merely writing to a prompt, but writing from inside a prompt, exploring ideas and memories that would otherwise remain uncreated and unremembered. Her workshops are a cross between a workout for your writing muscles and a meditation for your mind. A playground for your creative self to have fun and explore, and where you’ll find a coven of like-minded souls to support you."

-- Louise Allan, THE SISTERS' SONG

The WORD CAVE is a four-day virtual retreat.

Each CAVE is limited to 12 people.

All levels of writers/artists welcome.

What you get in the CAVE:

  • Preparation instructions for how to make the most of your time in the CAVE
  • Two daily group 60-minute check-ins/writing workshops
  • A community of support and accountability
  • Permission to protect time for your creative work and claim it as your birthright

"Each time I’m in the WORD CAVE, I think this is the best CAVE yet. And every time, I’m surprised with how deeply supportive and enriching the CAVE is for the work and for me as a writer and a human. The sense of community you weave and the paths you open in front of us give me such hope for the world we can create.”


RIGHT TO WRITE is a monthly 2-hour, live, generative writing workshop.

The workshops are recorded, so if you can't attend live, you can watch whenever your schedule allows.

  • a mini lecture about that theme

"You are amazing in how you create a container for us to go deep with the material. I love how you hold space for us all to go higher and inspire us to dare to be bold and enter new territory."

-- Sigi Torinus, Artist
