B Print Ink Writers' Room

2023 Update


Welcome to the B Print Ink Writers' Room!

I've been working on my own creative projects and have put teaching on hiatus for almost a year. I'm feeling more settled with it all and will offer sessions this spring: a 90-minute webinar, A Journey into Meditation and Creativity, a half-day workshop, Letters to Earth, and spread over two days, a Memoir Intensive. And, if you'd like to work with me one-on-one, please get in touch. For more information, scroll down. Registrations will be live March 1.

10:00 AM to 2:30 PM CST

Interested in writing your memoir, something for your children, grandchildren and future generations? In this two-day event, we'll explore all things memoir. What is a memoir? Why write one? How do I write one? What do I do when I'm finished? Bring your questions and we'll try to answer them for you. We'll also get you going on yours, whether you've started or not, with tips and tricks for digging in, even to the difficult scenes, to get your story onto the page.

A long Prairie winter, a summer of extreme heat, drought, and flames. A pandemic ravaging the globe. Severe flooding, landslides, whole communities under water and dirt. Our hearts know this pain. In this session we will come together in a process of contemplation and discussion, writing and revision, to write group and individual letters to Earth and all its beings. Or to an editor, a politician, a friend -- anyone -- as a means of transforming emotion into action.

Meditation is a proven tool for improving focus, calming the body and mind, and tapping into the subconscious -- all of which can help a writer meet the challenges that arise in a writing life. And there are many ways to meditate – breathwork, creative visualization, mindfulness, walking, and more.


A student of Natalie Goldberg, a former student of Regina Insight Meditation group leader, Dana Anjali, of one of the last of the Beat Poets, the late Diane di Prima, of Creative NonFiction Collective co-founder, Betsy Warland, and, most recently, of Faye Fitzgerald and the Training In Power Academy, Bernadette will share some thoughts, ideas, and exercises she’s gathered to build and maintain her writing practice for more than 20 years.
