DR. JUNE LEAVITT – WRITING GURU

Wednesday Widows Writing Club

Bimonthly sessions / 3 months running / 450$ (US)

On Our Own Together

We widows get tired of talking to the four walls or to ourselves. Even if we have kids and grandkids, we do not have our mates. Lots of times, we have no one to say good morning to and no one to unload to at night. We are on our own in every way imaginable. Even if we write in diaries about our loss, pain and our hopes, we can feel too lonesome. Wednesday Widows’ Writing Club is a small and intimate online widows’ support group for members only.

Look at the W’s in Wednesday Widows Writing Club!

W actually means double U.

U plus another. You plus us.

We are on our own together.

WHY JOIN?

  • You will receive support and warmth from other women who have lost their spouses.
  • You will take part in a writing group tailored for women and taught by a woman who is likewise challenged.
  • You will be part of a genuine online community where we widows go beyond grief through writing therapy.

WHAT ARE YOUR QUALIFICATIONS TO LEAD THIS CLUB?

I am a retired adjunct professor, creative writing teacher, and a published author. Now that I am recently widowed, I will guide this special group through writing exercises and readings that will help us assimilate our grief as well as give voice to our joys and the dreams we have yet to fulfill.

– Judith Cardozo Creative Director Jerusalem Biennale Art Exhibition
Working with June is working with a professional. The time and effort she puts into reading and re-reading work, typing up reports, and focusing on structure and language that can be strengthened, gives the writer tools to edit and rethink their work. I am truly indebted to her for her insights and constructive suggestions.
– Reva Mann, author The Rabbis’ Daughter
During more than three years of my participation in Dr. June’s creative writing group, I am constantly impressed by her acumen and conscientiousness in providing helpful criticism, her suggestions for the improvement of technique and her dedication to the art of good writing.
