Your story matters. Your voice matters. And the world needs what only you can tell.


“Cigdem’s writing groups provide a huge opening to explore and navigate my own thoughts and then create from them. Her stories never fail to start a little tornado, a good tornado, of muses and reflections, forming the words that eventually get put down. I love it, and that it happens in community rather than solitary space makes it all the richer an experience.”

DAWN SULLY PILE, Author, Speaker, Co-Active Coach & Seminal Leader

“This class is a great way of gathering content for a memoir. I am going to miss this group. What a wonderful experience and a fantastic collection of writers and writing! This feels like the most sacred writing space.”

JACKEE HOLDER, Executive & Leadership Coach, Coach Trainer & Author

“Writing. Stamina. I love this experience. Our writing is becoming a string of stories that paint a much larger picture. The words are flowing and they just won’t stop. Maybe I ‘will’ write that book some day.”

SUE ANN GLEASON, Writer, Holistic Health Specialist & Nourishment Guide

“I’m in the strategist’s chair everyday in my own business, and what I really needed was someone who could give me what I give to my clients: wise, supportive strategy to discern my truth. Working with Cigdem has been one of the smartest investments I’ve made this year.”

JAC MCNEIL, Co-Active Coach, Thought Partner & Entrepreneur

“I would have never been able to do on my own all the deep digging Cigdem guided me through. My business is now booming in all directions. Great new clients, speaking gigs, teaching, art. I’m so happy!”

CYNTHIA MORRIS, Author, Artist & Creativity Coach

“Cigdem creates a vibrant space for women’s voices in a world that feels increasingly hostile to those voices. In her groups I grew as both a writer and a person. It’s not easy work—her programs are rigorous, but it’s necessary work.”

BRIDGET JENSEN, Writer & Teacher
