Writer's Circle: Get Your Flow Going with Allison Fragakis

A supportive group of writers who gather together every month at The Hivery to share resources, wisdom, experiences, and receive writer-to-writer support! 

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!

Allison Fragakis joins us to lead the July Writer’s Circle! With fun exercises and writing prompts, Allison will help you put your inner critic down for a nap and get your flow going. Regardless of whether you’re feeling blocked, Allison’s writing tricks can help you dive deeper into any topic. Come with your journal, a favorite pen and a willingness to play. 

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

About Allison Fragakis

Allison Fragakis1.jpg

Allison Fragakis is passionate about creativity and helping others reconnect to their exiled creative selves. For the last 10 years, she has led creative writing circles and retreats for women. She combines the joy of writing with just about anything—including art journaling, music, nature, hiking, and even horses. As a poet, Allison writes on-the-spot personalized typewriter poems at parties and special events. This year, she has teamed up with a local florist, Flower Power of Marin, to offer “Petals & Poetry”—heart centered gifts of her personal poetry with custom flower arrangements. On random Sundays, find Allison with her 1967 “Blue Sterling” Smith Corona typewriter clacking out free poems for folks at the San Rafael Farmers’ market. In her past life, she was a registered dietitian and author of books and magazine articles on nutrition (The Health Professional's Guide to Popular Dietary Supplements published by the American Dietetic Association and co-author of The Jungle Effect).  Allison has awakened many of her own long-lost creative dreams and is still in hot pursuit of all forms of creative expression including songwriting, dancing, singing, drawing, poetry, painting, jewelry-making, card-making, children's book story writing, butterfly taming, tree talking, gardening and much more that she joyfully shares in her blog.
