Map and Directions

You don't have to be a writer, or would-be writer, to get a lot from a Fearless Writing workshop. On the other hand, if you are, you'll get a double-dip: skills and techniques that will serve you not just in writing but in almost every other life-endeavor.

If you've ever found yourself stopped cold by unexpected change, doubt in your own abilities, uncertain outcome,  other peoples' needs, feeling like a fraud, or unfamiliar economic, technological, or social conditions...

... if you're tired of this, Fearless Writing offers a way to stop being stopped. 

The workshop uses the anxiety generated by chaotic conditions as a powerful creative force. Fearless is practical, effective, creative, serious and playful. It turns apparent obstacles into the material: for writing, but from which to build a thriving and resilient life.

Fearless's writing practices and principles spill over cornucopia-like: from writing, to creativity and problem solving, to business and personal life.

It works for blocked or would-be writers, and for people who don't identify themselves as either.

It works whether you perceive the obstacle stopping you as an inner or outer barrier.

It works, period.

In Fearless, you'll discover how to

  • unwrap the secret gifts of fear, misgivings, & self-doubt
  • decode procrastination's hidden messages
  • align expenditures of time, energy & money to your life-destination
  • experience, trust, and use your creative self as a reliable partner
  • work harder by working softer
  • immediately begin writing with more clarity, strength, and ease
  • find your authentic, original, unique voice
  • keep surprising & re-inspiring yourself
  • use FW's principles to create a thriving business, personal, & creative life 
  • become your own mentor, continuing the Fearless path long after the workshop

One more thing: Fearlesses are never held in generic or chain hotels, but in carefully picked venues: smaller, independent places that are as one-of-a-kind as the writing process each writer experiences during Fearless... sites where the physical, emotional, cultural and spiritual environment itself comforts, fueling and enhancing inspiration and breakthrough. 

Examples: Fearless Writings have been held in a monastery-turned-inn in Italy, a writers' colony in Arkansas, an holistic spa in Mexico, the Margaret Mitchell Museum in Atlanta (!), Crescent's own farm in Vermont. Usually close proximity to nature is involved, and always, the food is terrific and copious. 

Yet even with a long history of picking out special places, our site for this year's Fearless in New England is exceptional. 

It's the Guest House Retreat & Conference Center, in Chester, Connecticut, housed (beautifully, as you can see if you click on that link)  in a former country inn nestled into 16 wooded acres beside a state forest. The Guest House's very mission  --- "We create opportunities for transformational work and provide a nurturing environment for those seeking to develop human potential and enrich the world" --- is in resonant harmony with that of FW. A beautiful place, quietly luxurious, quietly friendly, where creativity and self-inquiry are valued, nature is close at hand, the food is excellent, and the staff kind and professional. 

And its name? It's from the Rumi poem, The Guest House
