An extended writing challenge, such as the Wild Women 40-Day Writing Challenge, can improve your practice (and maybe your personality!) in a myriad of ways!

Share and Critique
Our challenge comes with a dedicated private forum where you can share your writing and get/give feedback.
“Heather comes across like we imagine the true craft masters do: wise, practiced, compassionate and still curious. She helped me feel like a thing I’ve been dreaming about is not only possible, but just around the corner for me.”
Heather Jo Flores hosts an amazing course: Wild Women 40-day Writing Challenge. It inspires me to write every day and to explore all of my subjects: nature, heartfelt and compassionate living, permaculture and sharing in words and other creative modes. The assignments are easy to understand, also for a non-native to the English language. If you want to grow as a person, as a permaculturist and as a writer, please follow Heather's work, enroll in one of her courses and have lots of fun!
“Heather Jo has hit on something special. As a woman it important for me to write and I’m enjoying the topics she has chosen. I deeply appreciate the supportive, friendly space Heather has created and am finding it enthralling and liberating to read, write and share in this group.”
“I started the challenge to work on a personal writing blockage. The problem for me is not the writing itself, but how to write something from my authentic self and take the step to share it with the unknown. This course is helping me to take the leap and trust the process, and I am so happy about it. I have been writing every early morning, and the day continues with so much inspiration. Somehow it is also helping me to communicate better and it has been supportive to the rest of my work as well. Thank you, Heather Jo!”
“Heather knows what she’s talking about. She teaches in a natural and personal way, and has deeply thought through how it is for women in patriarchy, and how we can take a new approach, to our lives and our writing.”
