Sovereign Writers Circle Application
I'm thrilled that you'd like to join the SWC when we open our doors to new members at the beginning of the month!

The SWC is here to support you as you develop and maintain a writing practice and pick up some tools that will help you get those stories into the world, but it's more than that...

Any place where we explore and tell our stories is a sacred space, and I take my job as gatekeeper very seriously.

This questionnaire is intended to help me ensure that all members will honor the rules and spirit of our Circle. By completing and submitting it you are also saying YES to our Community Promise.

The SWC Promise of Commitment, Compassion, and Confidentiality

- Show up... for yourself. The only way to strengthen your writing and your voice is to use it. Often.
- Show up... for your fellow writers. We become stronger writers when we receive conscious, compassionate feedback. Please offer your attention to others in the Circle and trust they will offer the same.
- Sometimes you can't show up... and that is ok! All sessions will be recorded. We'd love to see you for at least 3 of our 6 monthly gatherings.
- Lead with kindness. Writing is hard most of the time. We hold each other's efforts with tender care.
- Confidentiality. What's said in group calls or shared in drafts or in discussion is strictly confidential - until the writer hits "publish" and asks all of her writer friends to share it it they are so moved.
- Please understand that I'll lovingly refer to the SWC as my "Stable of Unicorns." (You're ok with being called a unicorn, right?)

And, by filling out this application you are saying yes to a 3 month ($299) or a 6 month ($499) commitment to the group. We meet every Wednesday plus one or two Mondays per month. All calls are at 12 noon ET. We meet on Zoom.

The sovereign writer in me sees the sovereign writer in you,

Marisa Goudy
