Courage • Creativity • Community
“When I signed up for Heart. Soul. Pen., I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to write, but I knew I wanted a safe space where I could try to figure it out. So I took a leap of faith, got out of my comfort zone and ended up meeting an amazing group of writers, all who I learned from, all who inspired me and all who I now consider friends. Additionally, and maybe most importantly, I started to actually write from my heart and soul instead of only my head. The way a car battery sometimes needs a jumpstart, my creative life urgently needed what I got at Heart. Soul. Pen.”
—Gayle Abrams, TV writer, essayist, novelist
“To say I had a case of writer’s block is an understatement. I working everyday, yet was unable to finish project after project. I was spinning, stressed — I even wondered if I had lost my ability to write. I was experiencing a total creative crisis. In my very first session with Robin, she identified the problem. It was my process that was not working… I was relying on everyone else’s opinions and stopped listening to myself. She gave me the most valuable piece of advice: Youare the expert of your story. You know it better than anyone. She helped me break through the walls of self-doubt, and I finally feel good about writing again. I finished my project and I now realize that the most important voice to listen to is my own.”
—Laurie Silverstein, screenwriter
“After her one day Heart. Soul. Pen. workshop, I eagerly signed up for Robin’s private coaching, and her the Heart. Soul. Pen. 8-week writing course. Every time I went to a class or saw Robin for private coaching, I left feeling inspired with a new positive direction and vision for expressing myself. Robin sets the tone and direction of each session with ease and grace, and before you know it, you feel easy and graceful too. Her love of the creative process is contagious! She is a wonderful mix of curiosity and encouragement. Wherever you are in your own writing process, if you need a little nudge or a big push, Robin will take your lead and help you follow through on your own creative path. I highly recommend her in whatever capacity is tempting you!”
—K. Laurel, dramatist, actor, writer
“Robin’s presence is calm, supportive, and encouraging. She has a gift of seeing, sensing and knowing what her students really want, but may not even realize themselves — and then helps light a path for them to follow.”
—Melissa Gould, writer/producer, essayist, author
“Robin’s class didn’t feel like a class it felt more like a meeting of the minds – brilliant, creative and inspiring minds. It pushed me to more brilliant, creative, inspiring and open in my writing and in my life. It was a true delight to be among these women, to go outside of my comfort zone and find that it was safe and welcoming!”
—Jocelyn Clegg, therapist, writer, mom
“Robin is a thoughtful and thought-provoking teacher and creates a nurturing environment to share. I am motivated to get my first book out there and move forward with my second book!”
—Teri Meyer, writer
