Pen. Page. Possibilities.

At WriteYourWayIn, I believe that everyone has a unique voice, a unique story to tell. My mission is to encourage, support, and protect that voice.

In a safe and creatively vibrant environment, writers at all levels of experience can explore, experiment, and take creative risks.

WriteYourWayIn Workshops and Retreats refresh and revitalize your love of writing.


One way I and many others have found to stay afloat creatively and emotionally in these challenging times is to write in community online. Writing together, however virtually, has provided the next best thing to hearing the scratch of pen on the page.

These guided workshops will keep you writing, maintain connections to other writers, and support your writing sanity in these times of CoVid-19.

All sessions are offered through user-friendly meeting software.

Each 3-hour workshop offers several unique prompts to launch the pen, invitations to read your freshly generated work, and receive supportive feedback–all designed to keep words flowing.

FEE: $25.00 CAD each 3-hour workshop *


Throughout this 6-week series, participants can work on a project or generate a series of shorter works. Whether you have a spark of an idea, in the midst of a longer piece, or are simply looking for inspiration to get rolling, this is the place for you. We’ll explore aspects of craft through example and experimentation, and especially through developing our listening skills.

The group provides every writer’s much needed support and encouragement to cultivate trust and confidence.

At the completion of the series, writers can submit up to 10 pages for a thorough manuscript review.

Deepam’s workshops are always wonderful. The prompts she chooses are inspiring, and I love the supportive, creative environment she creates. Even though we are all on-line, I still feel like I have been among friends when the workshop is over.

    I have quickly become addicted to Deepam’s online workshops, which have lost none of the intimacy and immediacy of her in person workshops.  

    Deepam’s prompts dig deep and illicit writing that is unexpected and beyond the range of what I normally write. I’ve even written my first poem in a recent class. Her feedback digs even deeper and she provides so much insight, it’s as if she’d written each piece herself. She gets inside the writing and so our discussions are meaningful, helpful, and rich. 

    If you love to write this is a wonderful way to spend some time. If you’re new to writing, this is a safe and accepting learning environment, where you’ll feel you’re with your tribe.
