Making Notes

Writing from the Womb (WFW) was established in 2013 by Alicia Anabel Santos. Since then she has midwifed +200 students while nurturing hundreds of others as the founder of the NYC Latina Writers Group @nyclwg (Est. 2006). As the Writing Midwife, she has helped birth countless stories, essays and poems. She offers WFW and WFW the master class (writing intensive) WFW is a nine-week creative writing workshop and WFW the Master Class is six-week writing intensive where my writers generate close to sixty pages of prose by the end of the workshop.

WFW is a virtual workshop series designed to push writers to connect to the heart of their story. WFW focuses on your writing goals, setting clear intentions and hard deadlines. Using writing prompts and lectures on craft Alicia gently pushes you to dive deeper, dig, and really live inside of your story. The womb is a sacred place. The womb is the place where we conceive and give birth to an idea, a dream, a song or a story. The womb is where the heart of our story resides and where we hold our truths and together we will write from this place. It is her privilege to be your Writing Midwife! For writers at all levels / Cross genres (This workshop is inclusive of all genders and open to the public). Limit of 15 participants.

Welcome to the WRITING FROM THE WOMB BOOTCAMP!

 

For nine years I have designed and facilitated WFW workshops with

the intention of creating spaces where you feel safe enough to write

your stories and meet your creative goals. 

 

WELCOME TO BOOTCAMP!!!

 

What is the WFW BOOTCAMP?

 

WFW BOOTCAMP is more intense than all of my Writing from the Womb

Workshops put together. These sessions are designed to get you writing.

 

This round of WFW is a 9-Week bootcamp. These are intense training sessions. So, when I say, "Get down and give me 25!"

I am pushing you to focus on whatever your goals are for each session. Here you will deepen your writing practice and develop

compassionate self-editing techniques. This bootcamp is designed to help you silence the inner critic, release that pesky

imposter syndrome and help you unleash the stories within. 

 

As your Writing Midwife my goal is to train you to surrender and lean into the process and trust the story that wants to be told.

 

Bootcamps are meant to prepare you not only for battle but help you establish endurance. These sessions are meant to stretch

you beyond your comfort zone. The WFW BOOTCAMP provides time and space for your writing projects.

There will be NO writing assignments, NO lectures on writing (of course I will provide suggested reading) but the

WFW BOOTCAMP is designed to push you to focus on your goals and meet them.

 

You are literally in BASIC TRAINING! My intention is to prepare you physically, mentally and emotionally to stay with it and

complete what you came here to do! 

 

WFW BOOTCAMP GOALS

You will receive guidance for creating your writing plan

You will receive support managing your writing goals

Accountability during this process

A sense of community with other writers

 

As your Writing Midwife I am available during bootcamp:

To provide you with feedback on your writing

To support you in your writing process

And hold you down as you make progress towards your session goals

 

Who will benefit from the WFW BOOTCAMP?

Those working on major creative projects: i.e. writers, poets, artists. We also welcome those working on building their website,

writing their thesis or dissertation, designing a product line, etc. basically anyone who desires to be in community to meet their

goals and step into their purpose in very real ways.
