Meet Robin Finn of Heart. Soul. Pen.™ in Studio City

Today we’d like to introduce you to Robin Finn.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Robin. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.

When my kids were little, I went back to school and got a master’s degree in spiritual psychology. After that, I sort of “woke up” and remembered I was a writer. I started writing about parenting a child with ADHD, even though it was scary to write about something so personal. I was amazed by all the emails I received from people who related to my story. Writing is a powerful way to bring people together.

 

At some point, I realized I had a larger story to tell and that became my first novel, Restless in L.A. The novel is about a married woman with three kids (one of whom has severe ADHD) who re-connects on Facebook with her old love from college, and her life starts to spiral out of control.

 

Writing opened the door for me to talk with many women. So many shared with me their own desire to write. I launched HEART. SOUL. PEN. to create a nurturing environment where women can explore  their creativity, write openly, be in community with other women, and find their voices.

 

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?

 

Launching HEART. SOUL. PEN. (HSP) has been a joy but, like most endeavors, it evolved over time. At first, I wasn’t sure  how to bring together writing, spiritual psychology, and women’s stories. It took a few tries and adjustments before I hit on what I wanted HSP to be about.

 

I also needed to acquire new skills as a business person, like marketing, and outreach. These skills take time and I am still learning.

 

 

HEART. SOUL. PEN.™ – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?

 

A unique aspect of about HEART. SOUL. PEN. is that it’s a program for women writers. We work in an uplifting community of all women.

HSP is also made up of all levels of writers, from experienced professional writers, new writers, women coming back to writing after a (long) hiatus, and the writer curious. Everyone benefits so much from each other, regardless of where we are on our writing journey.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?

Success is engaging in work that makes me feel “on purpose.” Success for HSP is reaching more women writers and continuing to watch the program and the community flourish.

  • SOUL. PEN. 8-week course is $450
