When were you able to bring grace to a trying situation, your own or that of another person?
When did connection occur?

The Vibe & What's Included
This is a private, safe, and small group of women willing to regard 2023 with kindness.

We will write, share, and listen - gaining insights from our writing as well as one another.
You'll receive an e-book you can use to extend the ideas we explore in the workshop and add them to your morning journaling practice.
The e-book contains 5 additional end-of-year journal writing prompts, designed to extend your recollections of the past year.
Participant & Client Experiences
The work that I did with Amy completely changed my life for the better. By illuminating that you can be kind without sacrificing your own well-being, Amy helped me learn how to balance being of service both to others and myself—to the benefit of both.
Tom, Curator (L.A.)
The workshop gave me the opportunity to realize that I am not alone. The group members truly understood me and gave me time to express myself without judgment.
Amanda, Educator (California)
"Amy is a powerful coach. It was very easy to connect with her and open myself up enough to get into issues that were troubling me. She immediately understood the problem and she gave me some practical tips I could put into practice right away. Whenever I find myself facing that issue, I refer to her tips and find the way out."
Anna, CEO (Italy)
"My sessions with Amy helped to place a mirror up to existing patterns in my life, and to validate them as real experiences. She helped to place a new lens upon assumptions that effectively ran my life. I was able to better define "self-care" and actually rediscover a sense of play and curiosity, to indulge in life and not just duty."
Mary, Mom-in-Chief (Scotland)
"Amy is one of those very easy to talk to healers—I felt instantly comfortable expressing my thoughts, feelings, and experiences with her. The greatest benefit has been learning how to organize my many thoughts and big feelings into interconnected themes, which gives me the mental space to prioritize what I feel is most important to work on."
LeAnne, Massage Therapist (Utah)
Amy Jollymore founded Scrawl to share her passion for journal writing while raising awareness about journaling as an affordable, convenient mental health tool.
She's the author of The Kind Self-Healing Book and works of fiction, creative nonfiction, and journalism published in Fatal Flaw, Gigantic Sequins, Ravishly, and others. She studied creative writing and earned an MFA at Vermont College of Fine Arts.
Amy has been designing, leading, and writing curriculum, workshops, and educational videos since 2014.

Amy's iGnite talk, "Hacking the Phrase 'They Did the Best they Could'"
"I love creating space for others to do self-compassion and introspection work. The ah-ha moments we can experience while practicing journal writing are powerful."
