The Writer's Muse

The Writer's Muse is an in-person workshop that encourages exploration through free and creative writing. This workshop is based on using life as your creative influence.

I looked up the definition of confrontation and I had no idea of the violence of the word, the negative connotation. I've rarely seen it that way. I always saw confrontation as valiant, as standing up for yourself, as the vehicle to obtain resolve. And maybe that's just communication, but there is something that I like about the word confrontation.

What we are afraid to confront in real life, we will often confront in our writing. It is a place of solace, a place of peace, a place of authenticity. 

I love the opportunity to confront myself, to confront the views of society, to confront the status quo, through my writing. That, to me is a beautiful and positive thing. 

It's natural to be afraid of what sharing your innermost thoughts can reveal, but the more that we practice, the more we confront the whole of ourselves, the easier it becomes. 

In this session of The Writer's Muse we will explore confrontation and resolve. 

This workshop is built for both active writers and those looking to write more. Whether you are a seasoned writer, or a novice, this is afternoon full of exploration and community. 

There will also be time to share your work! Come and get feedback from the group on a piece you’ve been working on or stuck on, etc. This a community of writers here to uplift and encourage one another! I hope to see you there.

Space is extremely limited. Content is suitable for those 18+. 

Light refreshments will be served. Please feel free to bring along your favorite journal! All other prompts and materials will be provided.

Love on Purpose Book Signing

Love on Purpose Book Signing

Join writer and author Ashley M. Coleman for the release of her sophomore book, Love on Purpose. This evening will feature an intimate discussion on love and relationships and a book signing.

Copies of the book will be available on site. Limited space available.

LOVE ON PURPOSE visits the most common relationship issues and how to work through them in love; from managing unrealistic expectations to improving communication. Coleman shares honest reflections on growth, past mistakes and important lessons in love through her journey of becoming a Christian. Her accounts of learning about God’s love caused a transformation in her relationships with friends, family and her significant other. In the book she also challenges readers to do their own self-assessment through “Heart Checks” at the end of each chapter. Starting with a conversation she had with her now husband, the book begins with her realization that love is indeed a choice.

Coleman says, “So many of us are searching for the fairytale not knowing what it really means to be in the trenches of love. I’ll never forget talking to my husband when we were dating and hearing him say ‘Love is a choice.’ It was contrary to everything I thought I knew about love. For so long it was all about how love made you feel and not about the important decisions we make every day to believe the best, to be kind and to compromise. Love is a verb, we have to act on it to truly see it manifest ”
