NOW is the time to create with abandon, dream big, be fearless, trust your intuition, and Write that BOOK!

Together . . .

Go through all the steps to create a book, scene by scene, to the end. We will cover all aspects of writing craft; character development, plot, dialogue, setting, how to write in scene, editing and more. 


Set personal goals, the group can support you to meet . I do not crack the whip; it is not my job to force you to work. However, it is my job to inspire you to write!

Birth a book rather than write it. I believe that writing and creating should expand your heart and mind. I don't believe in writer's block! There is always a way out, and I will show you the way.

Learn how to tap into your creative, imaginative, unblocked, and free-flowing self. We will unlock, push through, and master what might have held you back in the past.

Gain writing and storytelling skills to entertain and inform, play and vocalize, in a supported non-critical circle of women who share the same goal--birth of an idea, message or story.

Release the stories that bind you to a belief, idea, action, habit, relationship or event that might block light, love and creativity from flowing freely in your life.

Gift your story the time it needs to grow in the womb of deep contemplation and exploration.

    Creating together in a circle of women all working to birth a passionate message is incredibly powerful. Each member brings her own magic, knowing, passion, curiosity and life experiences to the group.  This allows you to tap long forgotten memories in a safe way that will bring richness and understanding to your soul. WHY DO THIS? Why commit to yourself? So you can heal, forgive, and experience your life in a way that frees old beliefs, narratives, and relationships, so you can let go, be free, and live!

    It doesn't matter if your dream is publication, writing to know yourself better, to leave a legacy for your family, to overcome a fear of writing, or whatever is motivating you right now. Your purpose will be honored.

    So, you think you want to write? Like all of us, I’m sure you have a story deep inside you, but sometimes we need a little help getting it out of our brains and onto paper. Well, let me help you find the right person for this job. For the past eighteen years, I’ve had the honor and pleasure of working with Sheila Ellison. My writing started with just creating short stories but grew. Today I’ve published two books, self-published two more, and have a work of fiction in progress. Sheila’s classes are not just informative and creative, but she has a way of burrowing into the soul of each writer, giving them just the right tools they’ll need to be successful. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her guidance. Whether you’re just a beginner or want to improve your art, Sheila is the best person to help you. I plan to continue with her, probably forever!       Jackie Madden Haugh
    Sheila’s year-long writing class was so much more than I ever imagined it would be. I got to know and liberate myself in unexpected ways. It was like two years of creative therapy! I released old baggage I didn’t even realize I was carrying. I wrote stories about my past - was able to feel all the hurt, the joy, the angst of my younger self and see aspects of my “story” I had never seen before. I found this process to be incredibly healing. I am so very grateful for this experience and for Sheila’s grace. Her methods of teaching are unique and meditative. She helped us reach deep places within ourselves that made writing our stories flow. She teaches from the soul.   Anne Hartley Willis
