Each week, I offer mini-writes, feedback, strategies, support, methods, and mindsets to help you release and share your authentic voice. Our deepest writing comes from our bodies, not our minds. When we learn to get out of our own way, our creative genius naturally shines through. In The Den, you will write and share feedback in a manner that sparks your creativity, enhances your accountability, assists you in writing without judgment, and invigorates your writing!
Your monthly membership includes:
• Weekly commitment making; weekly writing prompts for "Two Minutes of Magic" miniwrites; Den Talks focused on writing strategies and methods, working with timed writing, supporting freshly-written material, going deeper into your writer’s voice, creating and sustaining momentum, building confidence as a writer, submitting and pitching your writing, and other relevant topics as they arise; weekend writing challenges; collaborative writing opportunities; and exercises designed to support and uplift your creative spirit. Every writer will receive individualized, strength-based feedback designed to nurture a writer’s original voice and build artistic self-esteem. The Den is a nurturing and generative space to write.

In 2017, Robin’s first novel, “Restless in L.A.” was named a "Best New Novel of 2017" by Babble.com. Robin launched and teaches the Women’s Writing Workshop at UCLA Extension Writer’s Program and is an Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA)-certified writing facilitator. She has master’s degrees in public health from Columbia University and in spiritual psychology from the University of Santa Monica.
Robin believes that when women find their voice on the page, it transforms their lives, that women thrive in community, and that creativity is stoked through authentic sharing and supportive feedback. She believes our most meaningful work arises from our body not our brain. Her motto is, “Don’t think, just write.”
Robin lives with her family in L.A. where she writes about midlife, writing, parenting, spirituality, the creative process, and finding inner peace (sort of). She is a frequent contributor to the Los Angeles Times and blogs weekly at, "Sleepless in the San Fernando Valley" at https://medium.com/sleepless-in-the-san-fernando-valley.
