WE R RIGHTING GROUP: A Pocket Guide to Writing in Groups…and Righting the World


An easy, step-by-step guide that takes the reader through one-hour writing gatherings.

As isolation grows in our modern world, we yearn for ways to connect with others. Existing ties grow weak; our methods for reaching out no longer work; or, worse, we feel we’ve lost any sense of community. In this simple, entertaining book, you’ll learn the power of the yellow pencil to create community. 

We R Righting Group is not just for those who consider themselves writers. Retirees and students, veterans and cancer survivors, those experiencing homelessness and corporate board members—anyone can use Righting Groups to find community in today’s difficult world.

This simple pocket guide uses the wisdom Ellen learned in her eight years of facilitating a writing group of Memphians experiencing homelessness. The “how to” manual offers easy guiding principles, basic supplies, fun topics, and motivation. Complete with loads of writing prompts to get you started, and not one bit of grammar!
