Are you writing a book?
Are you dreaming of becoming a published author, or even getting that second or third book published, and you feel like you just can’t get to the finished product on your own?
Author June Swadron will mentor and support you and provide an opportunity for you to work with other budding authors like yourself.
The group will provide a safe place for you to gather together, read portions of your book and receive constructive feedback from June and one another. There is also a buddy system set up for you to meet with another student to support you throughout the week. You will also learn valuable information about the publishing industry and what options are available.
“I had the opportunity to attend Junie Swadron’s “Authors Support Group” earlier this year. My manuscript, “Julia’s Secret”, had been stuck in a drawer for a couple of years at that time.I received amazing support and guidance from Junie and from the group. Junie is a wonderful facilitator, honest and heartfelt. The sessions were full of fun and extremely encouraging.Julia’s Secret is now finished and just waiting for the illustrations!! My blog is out there too – The Authors Support Group was a brilliant kick starter. I recommend it 100% – with all my heart” Anne Sture Tucker
” When I began the group I was feeling stuck and uninspired – the weekly meetings provided the impetus to work on new material which created momentum (and progress).
The support and feedback of the group was invaluable, making reflections available for writing still fresh on the page, applauding the successes and lovingly calling for more if the best was yet unwritten.”
“The Author Support group provided me with the encouragement and support to find my voice on paper and believe in it! Junie is a compassionate, skilled, intuitive and gentle facilitator… Amazing! Thank you!”
“I participated in a writers support group with Junie this past winter(2012) and as I reflect back it still strikes me how much of a healing process it was. I thought I was joining a writing group which would give me some more writing tools to add to my belt, but I was pleasantly surprised I got much much more than that! This 8 week course was a catalyst for my leap of health that I find myself now. I can now stand lounging in this stronger place, enjoying the serenity that comes after releasing more of the layers of pain, after finding my way to healthier routines and habits. Junie’s programme helped me to see that indeed I have writing skills and gifts and it motivated me to pick up the pen and move on some projects that have been laying dormant for years. I am so grateful that Junie is honoring her gifts and sharing this with the world. The people that she attracts to the group are just as powerful, compassionate and inspiring as she is! Like attracts like. I feel honored that I was in the same circle with such talented and creative people. Thanks Junie!”

I loved being in the safe container of the Author Support Group. The words of encouragement and wisdom from June, Esther and my sister writers were like powerful medicine, inspiring me to write and then write some more. I look forward to continuing and meeting more writers in the September group.– Monica Kingsbury
Both of these women, Esther and June, radiate the essence of awakening to our true selves. They have the lovely ability to hold a group in open space and allow the creative muse in us to aspire to all she/he can be, and fly!–Stephanie Needham
The Author’s Support Group has been a very nurturing environment to hatch my fledgling play and gradually take the steps to learn to fly. A great environment to meet others of like mind, also.–Amy Robertson
As a writer working on my first book, I found June's gentle suggestions and Esther's technical know-how invaluable. Writing can be lonely work; their team approach encouraged a strong bonding and mutual support among the group members. Especially helpful were tips on how to still the negative inner critic and how to break through writer's block. I highly recommend this course.–Ella Brown
