Let’s write together

Heart. Soul. Pen.’s mission is to help you find your voice on the page and in your life. Together, we go on a journey to explore your radical self-expression and write, share, and connect. Using strength-based feedback, guests leave with a deep sense of worthiness and inspiration and with simple tools to add writing to their life or reinvigorate their writing practice. Whether for writers, teams, retreats, or events, guests routinely call the workshops “a creative jumpstart,” “deeply inspiring,” and “transformational.” Contact me and let’s write together.

“I thought I hated writing. In less than an hour, Robin turned that around. I got to be creative, I got to laugh, and I got to connect with my colleagues. I even lost track of time. Turns out that writing is fun and it’s for everyone.” 

–Participant, Marco Polo app

“In our writing workshop with the wonderful Robin Finn, we wrote about ourselves and our journeys using her prompts and guidance. Many of us shared our writing, and it was an incredibly moving, beautiful and bonding evening. We often express things in writing which we don’t give voice to. This was a powerful opportunity to do that. We will do another one!”

–Chana Heller, Director Jewish Women’s Initiative, Aish HaTorah

Midlife is a time of ‘ughs and fabulosities.’ Heart. Soul. Pen. will help women dig deep to rediscover the power of their authentic voice and unleash the inner sparkle that is uniquely their own. Buckle up, it’s time to write and unleash the storyteller within!” 

—Dr. Sarah Milken, “The Flexible Neurotic” and host of the Midlife Reinvention Podcast

“Robin is amazing! I never realized how writing could play such an important part of self-expression. Her exercises were thoughtful, and her insight was inspiring. Everyone in the group loved it – including me! We will definitely be doing this again.”

Corey Spiegel, Founder of FindYourLightHouse.org
