Psychic Development for Writers


I’ll be presenting at Seton Hill University’s IN YOUR WRITE MIND writer’s workshop on Friday morning, June 22. My topic is “Psychic Development for Writers.”

Psychic development is not just for a gifted few. It’s for everyone human, and especially for you as a storyteller.

This workshop will help you discover the innate skills of clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience. By exercising your psychic sensing mechanisms, you widen your inspirational channel, empowering you to create stories that resonate more deeply with readers.

Come prepared with a specific project in mind to strengthen your imaginative abilities.

Please join us that weekend for genre writing advice and help.
