Finding Your Wild Voice, with Laurie Wagner


Finding Your Wild Voice, with Laurie Wagner

In this episode...

“I think of it as a writing practice, but it’s a healing practice.”

That’s what the author, teacher, and artist Laurie Wagner says about wild writing — a process in which you write as fast as possible for 15 minutes, pushing past your inner critic, your ego, and your desire to look good so you you can connect with your real self and let your wild, authentic voice come forward.

In this episode of Your Permission Prescription, Laurie and I talk about the therapeutic benefits of wild writing, the power of poetry, and why everyone has the right to write.

  • Beating perfectionism by finding joy in screwing up.
  • How wild writing is a catalyst for courageous truth-telling (especially if you struggle to be honest with yourself or others).
  • What it’s like to be part of a writing class that is also a healing community.
