Self-care for Writers with Spencre McGowan

Writing can be tough on the nervous system. We often give our entire selves to the process and it’s easy to forget how to care for our own selves. This workshop is for writers, freelancers, business owners, students and more. If you’re someone who devotes themselves to a project and put yourself last, this class is for you.

Join author, herbalist and local Missoulian, Spencre L.R. McGowan, for a lesson on how to manage self care during the process of writing or working on a long term project. We’ll touch on the importance of accessible luxury, healing foods, herbal remedies, imposter syndrome and the importance of good friends. All participants will have the opportunity to make their own herbal remedy that helps cope with stress and anxiety.

Spencre L.R. McGowan is an herbalist, cook and author of Blotto Botany: a Lesson in Healing Cordials & Plant Magic. She is the creator of Gingertooth & Twine, a blog and shop dedicated to enhancing herbal wisdom through plant based brews, meals and publications. Spencre received her certification as an herbalist from the California School of Herbal Studies in 2013. She currently lives in Missoula, Montana with some plants.
