Heart. Soul. Pen.®

8-week writing course

HEART. SOUL. PEN. is a radical writing process, created by Robin Finn, as an experiential pathway to connect to our voice on the page through writing, sharing, and the joyful freedom to explore. Guided exercises, strength-based feedback, and the creation of a safe container within which to explore brings writers to a deep appreciation of the worthiness of their words, stories, and self-expression. The signature course is 8-weeks and offered live on Zoom and locally in Los Angeles throughout the year. All are welcome: journal writers, new writers, poets, seekers – no prior writing experience necessary. 

Hot Writing™ Parties

Radical self-expression around midlife, menopause & transitions

Women are fed a false narrative that midlife and menopause are stories of loss of beauty, power, and relevance. This is not true. As women age, their wisdom grows and so does their desire to say what they mean without apologizing. In Hot Writing Parties, we do just that! Hot Writing uses writing exercises, sharing, and a bold freedom to explore, to unleash our truest words, stories, and self-expression around midlife, menopause, and life transitions—with courage, dispelling shame. No prior writing experience necessary. All journal writers, new & experienced writers, and seekers are invited. Hot Writing Parties are offered live in L.A., on Zoom, and for organizations promoting women’s wellness throughout the year.
