The Heart. Soul. Pen. workshops we’ve offered have created connections across demographic and geographic lines among writers of varying experience levels, and inspiring attendees.  Robin’s warm, lighthearted energy and strengths-based feedback encourages everyone to write freely without fear of judgement, and often to continue on the work they create during the workshops.” –Columbia University Alumni Association of Southern California

“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

“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
