Are you feeling stuck creatively?
Do you find yourself staring at the ashes of your motivation, wondering how to rekindle the fire that was doused by the existential crises of 2020, the mixed messages of returning to a new normal in 2021, and the onslaught of activities and obligations that propelled themselves back into your life in 2022?
Has your creativity begun to tingle once again, but you’re not quite sure how to work it back into your life as a regular, self-sustaining habit?
Do you long for the days when you could dive into your story, your artwork, your garden, or your novel and forget to come up for air – let alone food and water – because creativity was feeding into every single insatiable cell in your body, and my lord how delicious was that?!?
Do you want that back?

What gives? I give.
This is me putting some skin in the game.
Consider this price a gift and a good sign of things to come in 2023.
My goal is to fill Club MEG with as many writers & creatives as possible.
Why? For your sake and for mine. The magic we make when we writers & creatives meet and connect is breathtaking. Life-affirming. Awe-inspiring. It fills me with wonder and stimulates my own creativity every time. This magic shows up over and over in my writing labs, workshops, retreats, and salons because of who’s in each one; writers & creatives spark each other into greatness.
I think we could all use that after the recent years of drama, pivots, and readjusting we’ve all had, amiright? To make space for a full and thriving Club MEG, I decided to make it as financially accessible as possible to as many writers & creatives as possible. Consider this price a gift and a good sign of things to come in 2023.
2020 & 2021 taught us something real:
We need each other.
We need to connect. We need to belong. We need other people to look forward to sharing time and ideas and stories with us. We need feedback. We need people to bounce ideas off, celebrate with, commiserate with, and to give us a reason to get up, get online, and get busy with life, regardless of constraints imposed on us by circumstances beyond our control.
Membership in a Club MEG comes with membership in a private, ongoing Facebook group. Within this group, fellow writers + creatives give and receive support, encouragement, information, insight, wisdom, and humor. Sound too good to be true? I have a winning formula for fostering connection and nurturing joyful productivity–it’s my brand and I use it in every group.
We highlight effort and achievement in Club MEG. We applaud you for joining us, for being brave enough to tell us what you want to achieve and for following through on your commitment to yourself in the middle of everything else going on in your life and the world at large.
We need people.
Join the club. I made it just for you.
Hello, Writer. I’m your friendly neighborhood writing & creativity coach, Bronwyn. It’s my job to nurture your creative identity and to find ways to fan that flame of inspiration again.
I have been mentoring writers off and on for 20 years. In 2014, I established a writing community in the San Francisco Bay Area, recently renamed To Live & Write … Wherever You Are to embrace the 2020 pivot to online group events and activities.
I work 1:1 with clients who, just like you, have struggled to find time, space, and energy for their own writing & creativity in the middle of a pandemic characterized by sheltering in place, social distancing, online teaching and learning, social awakening and activism, politics, and murder hornets, among other things.
Re-emerging from all of that to what comes next could feel overwhelming without a group like Club MEG to lift you up and keep you focused.
It’s the same old MEG you know + love rebranded for the 2020s
I specialize in inspiration + motivation. Over the years, I have designed and produced dozens of writing labs, workshops, retreats, and salons. Every year since 2014, I have hosted, co-hosted, and produced countless lit nights, open mics, write-ins, discussions, and other events and activities out in the world. Then 2020 came along and guess what? I found a way to keep a lot of it going, thanks entirely to the inspiration, motivation, and very real support of the wonderful members of my writing community–many of whom have made The MEG journey themselves, some more than once.
In 2020, The MEG was a 30-day journey. At the end of each unique MEG, though, about 60% of the group wanted to continue for a second and third month (two groups kept recommitting for five months and one is closing in on a full year), so in 2021 I added the 3-month Club MEG to start off the year and the 2-month Camp MEG to sit nicely between the last and first days of school in our area.
If you are hyper-focused on a goal and/or commitment scares you, email me to find out how to join a 30-day MEG: [email protected]
Okay … but what is Club MEG in action? Why do you want it?
In three words: Inspiration, Motivation, & Accountability.
In another three words: Support, Encouragement, & Cartwheels.
Club MEG grew straight from my desire to meet the needs of many of the writers & creatives in my writing community, To Live & Write … Wherever You Are. It’s one thing to write every day and enjoy the achievement of having established a creative habit. It’s another thing entirely to know what to do next with yourself and your writing.
Club MEG is a great place to ask that question. What can I do next? Where do I share my work? How do I make this happen? The best part of membership in Club MEG is the way your fellow writers & creatives are ready to engage with you, to let you bounce ideas off them, to make suggestions, to lend advice, and to borrow some back.
I have a very special place in my heart for The Month/s of Extraordinary Goals (The MEG) and especially for the writers & creatives who have stretched themselves with these 30-day, 2-month, and 3-month goal spotting challenges. Every group is different, but the tools remain the same—because they work. I use the coaching exercises on myself when I need to reconnect with my creativity or kickstart the drive to get something done. However, I find it far more rewarding to foster exciting results in others so I can watch their magic ignite and light up the world.
Is the sum of the parts greater than the whole? Find out for yourself. Join Club MEG.
Club MEG is a non-competitive but motivating, organized but organic, structured but casual 8-week journey towards meeting your individual goals. Inside Club MEG, individual writers & creatives set their own extraordinary goals, whether that looks like adding word count, querying agents, launching a blog, or something entirely different.
We begin by defining your goal. What do you want to achieve by the end of March? How about by the end of the year? Then, we look at reality. Does your goal make sense with your life? Where do you need to make adjustments in order to succeed (and sleep): in your goal or your life or both?
We create your life-size map, unfurl it, step in and start the journey.

A WORD ABOUT PAYMENTS PLANS & REFUNDS
The price for Club MEG is about a quarter of the value of the sum of its parts.
Payment plans available.
As a solopreneur, I am not in a position to refund any portion of your Club MEG fee. However, if necessary, I can give you credit for my future labs, workshops, retreats, or writing salons.
The only exception to this rule is based on my zero-tolerance policy for abusive, manipulative, or other disruptive or upsetting behavior. If you are asked to leave, I will refund the balance of your fees (prorated based on when you leave) on your way out.
Please go over the schedule carefully to make sure you can attend the online sessions. Club MEG meets on Zoom on Saturdays, 900-1030am PDT. You will miss the foundational work of connecting to your goals if you miss the Saturday sessions. Mid-week check-ins in the Facebook group are check-ins only; they are not make-up sessions for missed Saturday sessions.
