wild writing. wild nature. wild dreams. wild community.
We are barely tame. Made of bits of bone and feather, stone and earth, sinew and fluid, we are elemental. We are wild – and so is our writing.
Whether you are a downy writing fledgling or a word raptor, Sparrow and Raven is a unique, practical, inclusive space for writers of all levels and genres. You will find inspiration and encouragement, but you will also be challenged to bring out the untamed fierceness -the wild- of your writing. Subscribe to a monthly writing prompt, download a go-at-your pace module, or request content feedback or support for a particular project. Or, recommit to your craft and yourself at one of our week-long escapes into the beauty of some of the world's most astonishing wild places. However you join us, do.
We are waiting for you.
Fly away from routine and immerse yourself in writing, and self-restoration during week-long retreats in beautiful and surprising wild places in the remote areas of the Pacific Northwest and Europe.
Soar with us! Our monthly newsletter is packed with exercises delivered to your inbox that dig into language and meaning, writing as activism, the place of nature in our lives and more. Think of it as a monthly hug of encouragement as well as a call to arms!
Dive into any of our four session classes to light up your creative demi-urge. Classes include personal feedback relevant to each lesson. Offerings change regularly.
Engage our deepest level of support by working one-on-one with us. Let's finish a project or move you along your own creative continuum with the attention you and your work need to feel buoyed, ready to soar.
