Writer, speaker, teacher, coach and intuitive.
These are some of the hats I wear and somehow they all come together in the services I offer. My goal is to help you get your writing dreams off your iPad and out into the world. I LOVE writing – all kinds. My first works were poems published in an anthology in the 1980s. Lately, I’m working on fiction (a screenplay and novel) as that is what is calling to me now. And that’s the creative spark, isn’t it? You get called to whatever wants you at the moment. Your writing – whether fiction, non-fiction, journalism or poetry – is your soul expression. So let’s get it out there!
My latest book, The Collection: Flash Fiction for Flash Memory, is a project of the heart – a call to action to get out and read to those who might be unable to read longer pieces because of memory loss. I loved writing my flash fiction piece inspired by my niece Caitlin.
I’ve taught workshops in creative writing, the power of the first chapter for fiction, how to create a successful anthology and more. My articles have been published in Canada’s ALIVE magazine and Australia’s THE SPHERE, been featured on ABC News in Green Bay, WI and quoted in the Huffington Post.
You’ll find my books and CD here as well as updates on upcoming classes and workshops. In August of 2020 I assumed the role of Chair of the Board of Directors of the International Women' Writing Guild (The IWWG). I invite you to learn more about the IWWG, check out the course offerings, attend a free event, and be supported as you deepen both your creativity and your craft.
As a Metaphysical Minister, I hold online Sunday morning meditations. Those meditations are available to anyone here: https://www.cathleenoconnor.com/meditations
I can’t wait to see what is coming alive on your page!
