Taught by Lynne Golodner, whose work has appeared in Saveur, Poets & Writers, Seventeen, Better Homes and Gardens, Parenting, Parents, Good Housekeeping, HOME, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Free Press, and so many more.

In this course, we'll work on discovering your unique voice and encourage it to come out on the page in the form of personal essays and poems. After all, you've spent a lot of years focusing on getting ahead, building a career, and guiding others on their journeys.

Now it's time for YOU!

This six-week workshop will examine a variety of highly effective skills and practices designed to reignite your passion for writing and help you tap into your voice while discovering new ideas on the page.

At midlife, many people have a reckoning about who they are and what they want their life to be about. You've lived through experiences good and bad and want to focus on living your best life. Many feel pulled to write but need direction, accountability, and encouragement.

The central focus of this class will be helping you discover your unique and original voice and get you writing with purpose so that your stories can leave a legacy and inspire others.

Whether you are writing for yourself or for others, this course will empower you to feel confident in using your voice to make important statements, to be a witness to ever-evolving history, and to share insights that will help others on their journeys, too. This class promises to be a lot of fun: you'll leave the course a more engaged writer with new work to show after taking the six week class!

COURSE TAKEAWAYS:
  • Discover your unique voice and gain confidence in using your voice to speak up
  • Write at least three meaningful pieces
  • Mine your life experiences for powerful stories
  • Start to build your legacy
  • If you've allowed your passion for writing to dim, this is the class for you.
STUDENTS LOVE LYNNE:


"I really enjoyed my first Writing Workshop! I was surprised to find a class so perfectly geared toward what I needed and my skill and comfort level. I had no idea though of the inspiration, community, and support I would get from taking it. Lynne created an incredibly safe space for the class to come together, feel inspired, learn about ourselves and the craft of writing, and most importantly, to get us writing. I enjoyed the readings, and haven't felt this inspired to write in a long time. Well worth the cost and the risk of trying something new." -Ali S.

“This class has become the best part of my week.” -Olivet J.

My writing is becoming stronger and more purposeful, and I have a renewed sense of confidence as I write my first book." -AB

"The writers workshop helped me explore a part of my personality and interests that I hadn't yet allowed myself to dig into. I feel more connected to who I am as a writer as well as all the other wonderful writers who participated. One of my favorite aspects of the workshop was being in a safe space, sharing a variety of pieces with people of different backgrounds and perspectives. Not only have I learned more about myself and others, but I have been exposed to so many new genres and writing topics. Thanks, Lynne!" -JR

ABOUT LYNNE GOLODNER:

You know that person you were when you were little, before the pressures and stresses of having to earn a living or support a family? Back when you engaged in activities simply because they were fun and you were driven to do them? For Lynne Golodner, that person loved writing. In the early 1980s, she carried around a corduroy-covered journal, writing stories, poems, and skits. When a neighbor’s son tragically died in middle school, Lynne created a neighborhood newsletter to give his parents as a way to express sympathy for their loss. Writing was her way of figuring out the world, of capturing momentary beauty and stunning silence.

Lynne has written about home, architecture, design and real estate, food, faith and family, and she is the author of eight books. A nationally-celebrated journalist, Lynne has lived in New York, Washington, D.C., and Detroit, before pivoting her career to focus on marketing. Her writing has appeared in magazines and newspapers across America including Saveur, Better Homes and Gardens, Midwest Living, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Free Press, the Detroit News, Parenting, Parents, AARP: The Magazine, Seventeen, Good Housekeeping, HOME, Teacher Magazine, Hockey Digest, Poets & Writers, Tennis Magazine, Crain’s Detroit Business and so many more.

When she became a single mother of three young children in 2007, Lynne parlayed her communication skills into a new role as Founder and Chief Creative Officer at Your People – a marketing and public relations company with a focus on purpose and story that revolutionizes how organizations build brand awareness and grow their bottom line.

With a specialty working with Waldorf/Steiner schools, she helps schools and universities, nonprofits, and entrepreneurs market with meaning through strategic storytelling, mutually beneficial relationships and higher purpose. She has spent more than 20 years as an entrepreneur, college writing professor, and author, inspiring others to find their voice, identify their purpose, and live according to the unique passion found within. She believes the work you do should align with who you are at the core – and from there, grows a life of purpose.

Lynne is a 2020-2021 member of the Forbes Agency Council and repeatedly receives awards for her innovative marketing and public relations leadership. In 2019, she was recognized by MichBusiness as a Marketing & PR Prophet, and in 2018 Crain’s Detroit Business named Lynne a Notable Woman in Marketing.

Her most recent venture is the Make Meaning Movement, including the Make Meaning Podcast, which she launched in 2018. Lynne writes about marketing with meaning at Forbes.com. She also teaches writing and marketing/PR at University of Detroit Mercy.

Lynne has taught a variety of classes throughout North America, including her signature courses What’s Your Story, 21-Day Blogging Challenge, Sports Writing, Food Writing, The Art of the Essay, and Find Your Voice. Her college courses have included composition, literature and poetry, professional writing, creative writing, journalism, business writing and academic writing, among others.

A Fulbright Specialist, Lynne graduated from University of Michigan (BA, Communications/English) and Goddard College (MFA, Writing). She is the mother of four teenagers and lives in Huntington Woods, Michigan.
