words that move writing workshop





The Words That Move Writing Workshop is a 4-week online writing course for: 

// Writers who have lost their M O J O.

//  Writers who are scared to call themselves writers. 

//  Writers who feel blocked and uninspired.

// Writers who want to I N S P I R E and I N F L U E N C E.

//  Writers who want to clarify their M E S S A G E and D E L I V E R Y.

//  Writers who want to connect deeply with their audience. 

//  A N Y O N E who wants to fuel their self-discovery and write their way out of fear and confusion. 

Self-doubt is the #1 reason why many writers don’t write.

We question our relevance, if our stories matter and if our writing is good enough.

We think that no one will be able to relate to what we’re saying and how we say it.

But here’s the thing.

Writers N E E D to write.

If we don’t, we go through life feeling like something is missing.

Whether you invite others in or not, writing is a window into your inner world and the rewards of surrendering to it are endless.

"I truly enjoyed Soulful writing with GG. I feel so much love and gratitude for her. She is talented, generous, and a rich resource! In surfing the web you never really know what you'll get and I feel so blessed that I took a little risk to experience GG & her magical writing ways. I felt comfortable, understood, and supported throughout. She affirmed my gifts and strengthened my weaknesses. I feel more enlightened about the writing process and have all the tools I need to move forward in my writing goals. As a result, my writing is getting published and it's a lot easier for me to just flow and get my vision on paper. I look forward to working with her again soon!" - Nawala Thule Gani

If you are new around here, my name is GG Renee and for the past three years I've worked with dozens of women who wanted to reconnect with their creativity and find the courage to live more fully expressed lives.

Many of my clients have one thing in common:  a passion for the written word.     

Specifically...WORDS THAT MOVE.

You know that feeling you get when you read something that resonates with you?

Or the way you feel when someone describes something you've experienced in a way that makes you feel like they are reading your thoughts?


When a writer’s words connect with our hearts, our point of view, our vulnerable places -- we feel drawn in and we want more. When we discover that we can create this resonance with our own words, a light is sparked that is impossible to put out.





What is different about this writing course?

This is my most comprehensive course and it was inspired by all the women I have coached, vibed with and interviewed over the past three years.  Women who repeatedly told me that they felt something huge inside that they just didn't know how to express.   Women who want to say something with their lives but weren't sure what they wanted to say.  I remember feeling that way and how I wrote my way out of the confusion.  My approach to creative coaching is to address the limiting beliefs and fears that are in the way, so the unique perspective that is already there can be revealed.

Knowing and accepting yourself and your point of view is essential to any kind of writing.  

So not only will you learn specific techniques and strategies for both private and public writing, but you will also get a hearty dose of advice on self-possession, creative living and paving your own path as a writer and expressive voice.

"
GG and her workshop allowed me to dig deep and find not only focus but structure. I feel a soul connection now to my words and I’m inspired to improve every day in my writing. IF I ever need inspiration or feel I’m struggling I just go back to her great advice and follow along with her workshops. It helps me remember my greatness and that I, too, have much to share."  - Jacqueline Diaz

"The Words that Move Writing Workshop helped me to trust my voice, and to believe that my story was important. GG showed me that even if my efforts only affected a small few, my heart would feel the effect of freedom the most!" - Brandy Nickens

.....................................................................................................................................................................................................................


"I would most definitely recommend this course for anyone looking to spark the writing bug. I had serious writer's block and GG helped me face fears and insecurities that I didn't even realize were holding me back. In short this course is reflective, self-awakening and inspiring!" - Juliet Marie

.....................................................................................................................................................................................................................


"I feel like a curtain just came down and the words are happy to come out. I am writing daily and scribbling notes often. I get inspired through sight and feel more confident in me sharing my writing. Loving this workshop!" - Mari Corona


.....................................................................................................................................................................................................................



"Words That Move helped me to reconnect with the part of me that had the initial urge to write and share my voice and perspective. As a result of Words That Move, I can’t stop writing. When I sit down to write my thoughts flow freely. I no longer find myself judging my words and my ideas. I am writing down my thoughts again simply because they are mine. I enjoyed the community of the Facebook group, and I liked the weekly audio lessons. I would listen to the audio lessons on the go and after the lesson was over I would still be thinking about writing. The workbooks are visually pleasing. The exercises are inspiring and thought provoking. I like the quotes about writing that are before each lesson. I would recommend Words That Move to people who need inspiration to free the writer in them. I think that anyone who loves to write and to discuss the writing life would enjoy this course." - Ilea Eckhardt

.....................................................................................................................................................................................................................


"The Words That Move Workshop revived & enhanced my writing practice. While I still need to be more intentional about writing every day, my writing practice was enhanced by causing my imagination to be awoken & stretched by the prompts! Also, I want to write more prose: essays, short stories & maybe even a novel because of the examples & feedback from others in our group!

I would recommend this writing course to anyone who: wants to explore their writing voice, wants to remove writing under pressure/perception of others to gauge your authenticity & for those who enjoy interactive writing communities!

The course helped me want to write differently. Some of the prompts were given as one word & we were to run with it - those exercises helped me to write outside of my norm.

My favorite part of the course was the built in aspect of the workshop's community. I loved the capability to reach out and read others' work as they were being stretched, just as much as I was. The chats/Q&As were also great!"  -  De'Nita Moss


.....................................................................................................................................................................................................................

"If I don't learn another thing - moving forward, the workshop put the spotlight on why and how I could go from avidly embracing the writer in me to timidly questioning my every written word.

I spend today feeling the feelings I swallowed and getting reacquainted with that enthusiastic bright eyed creative Dynamo. Even if the journey isn't easy, I now understand why. The course helped me overcome my disconnect to writing. I would recommend this course to anyone who questions the call to be a writer. My favorite part of the course was the warm welcome and sense of family, the interaction and nurturing support of my fellow writers, and the gentle insightful nudges from our awesome instructor!" - Ava Griffith
