Our Approach

The Two Trees Writers Collaborative is part sanctuary, part “sacred grove in the heart.” We believe in alchemy and transformation, which is to say that our goal is to help you tap into your inner voice, sometimes in unorthodox ways, and then to turn your inspiration into art. Our mentorship and guidance is rooted in following three beliefs:

  • Every writer‘s path is unique.
  • Your individual process must be nourished and respected.
  • A writer needs both solitude and community.

Guided by intuitive writing practices that honor both the individual and the collective voice, Two Trees is a community where novices can find a variety of paths to explore newly-discovered material and where seasoned writers can choose from a menu of options to further develop their voices and work.
