Writer's Circle Featuring Jill Dodd

A supportive group of writers who gather together every month at The Hivery to share resources, wisdom, experiences, and receive writer-to-writer support! This month, we're thrilled to welcome Hivery member and author, Jill Dodd.


Meet the founder of ROXY, Jill Dodd, and hear her talk about her new memoir, "The Currency of Love," described by Publisher's Weekly as "This page-turning memoir of decadence and faith will resonate with seekers everywhere."

Learn about her early days on the international fashion scene, her search for freedom, and how she came about creating the hugely popular women's clothing brand, Roxy.

Thais Derich, the author of Second Chance (She Writes Press, 2017), will lead this engaging session. She's a woman's health advocate, inspirational speaker, and educator. 

Keep your writing projects in focus by attending The Hivery's monthly Writer's Circle. After this gathering, we continue to cheer each other on while writing at The Hivery, attending other Hivery community events, workshops and participating in our online forums. Come join us!

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. BYO brown-bag lunch discussion.  All are welcome!
