If you feel you've a story or stories inside you that you want to explore, then welcome!
Maybe you’re stressed, exhausted, or feeling like writing might help you to follow something that's stirring inside you. Or maybe you're itching to complete a writing project, yet you don't know quite where to start.
Good Stories Grow Here Writing Studio offers courses for individuals to experience the joy and craft of writing, and to be more present in their writing lives.
Some of these courses and one-on-one writing coaching will allow you to put the necessary steps in place to complete a project if that's your wish.
My courses make use of “somatic-based” writing techniques, which refers to expressing yourself creatively by way of the body instead of solely through the head. It means allowing the body to lead your writing process and trusting that process as you feel into your emotions, intuition, and physical sensations. Somatic writing gives you a way of writing and being in the world that strives for wholeness and presence, bringing immediacy and liveliness to your writing and your life.
Whether you're working on a short story, memoir, novel, or whether you just want to experiment with words and language and see where that takes you, these online courses and one-on-one sessions will enable you to experience the power of writing and learn to enjoy the journey.

Inspiration can come from anywhere, yet sometimes you may feel like you’ve been sucker punched by too much busy. My online courses are all about helping you come back to yourself (remember that person you used to be--and still are somewhere in there?) and feel amazing again.

Calling All Writers And Creators
I offer tailored one-on-one writing and creative coaching, and story mentoring to help you make sense of your wild and wonderful ideas. Whether you’re writing an e-book, a book of poems, painting a series of still lifes, a memoir or completing a short film, and just need some guidance to develop a work plan to start and keep going, together we’ll work through any blockages you have and design a path forward.
My name is Lissa and I'd love to help you write and/or finish your dream writing project. And, if it’s creative guidance you’re after then we'll go together to that happy place of creating—like the fort made of cushions in the living room, or that little table in the kitchen of your childhood that’s covered in crayon, ketchup and paint. As a writer and creator I'll work with you to uncover the story or stories burning inside you. Together, we'll bring your writing and life into razor-sharp focus and produce some heart dances and inner high fives along the way. My one-on-one writing coaching and somatic-based writing courses offer a selection of different options to help you achieve your writing dreams and enjoy the journey.
