Welcome to the Nest


You're a mom. And moms have stories. Lots of stories. Pregnancy woes. Labor horrors. Adoption successes. Kid adventures. Shipwreck fantasies about kid-free remote desert islands where waterfalls flow with wine...

Whether you're an adoring parent itching to record your family history, a new momblogger, a teacher with a novel waiting to be born, or a professional author trying to write around your rugrats, we've got space for you.

We're the Narrative Nest. 

A supportive monthly writing group for all kinds of moms and all kinds of writers. Facilitated by two professional writers with kids, we promise a cozy critique group for both the newbie writer and seasoned professional. We'll also cover topics like building a writing habit, self-editing techniques, choosing to write fiction vs. nonfiction, your author's website, social media skills, getting published, and more. 

Sign up now for alerts on monthly meetings & workshops. We can't wait to have you in the nest!
