The small step method of Kaizen meets up with the

Testimonials:

"Forgive me for fawning, but writing for the writing club has turned out to be one of the nicest treats I give myself. Deadlines are apparently The Key for me so I wish there was a "Play writing Club" where every week a new chapter, scene, etc would have to be forthcoming.  With of course some muse inspired prompt!"   ~Cheri

Just have to say, I LOVE the writing group. Never could have guessed just how much I love it. Thank you for existing and creating, so we can, too :) ~P.R. Anderson

"Your fun prompts have the same effect as shaking a bottle of champagne...

I get all fizzed up and the words just burst out." Thank you! ~K

"Your prompts release the writing like sap from a  
maple tree in spring. So much sweetness." ~ Linda

Your appreciation, inspiration and laughter fortifies me, but money helps keep the technology going and what's cool is that as you tithe to what inspires you - it all comes back.

 


Perhaps imagination is only intelligence having fun.
~George Scialabba


To find out where Muse Classes are taking place or to schedule Jill for your group, please email info@themuseisin.com .  

 

"Jill, I have taken a lot of the Amherst Writers [classes] and did not find it as useful as your suggestions, exercises,
and the solid concept, for me, of each muse. As I said, I use every one of them for different ways to write and teach.
Thanks for your ingenuity and thanks for initiating this group so we can nourish each other as well."
