HELLO!

I’m Tracie Nichols, a facilitator, copyeditor, and poet. My workshops and writing circles are for folks who love words and need respite from the “too much” of life.

I make safe, nourishing writing spaces for when you’re overwhelmed or feeling a bit salty, or way too Eeyore (when you’re usually more Piglet, Pooh, or Tigger.)


I’m really glad you found me. Here are ways I can help:


Featured Workshop

For people who can use some relief, maybe a little freedom, without a lot of fuss.

You should come if any of these words apply to you:

  • overwhelmed
  • worried
  • too busy for (fill in the thing that’s more important than you)
  • languishing
  • salty
  • Eeyore (when you’re usually more a Piglet, Pooh, or Tigger)

Saturday Writing Circle

Virtual fire circles where we write and share and laugh and cry and find relief and belonging. 

You are so very welcome to join us.

Copyediting Services

My copyediting and proofreading services go places grammar and spellcheckers can’t, helping small businesses and emerging writers confidently publish clear, accessible, error-free content.

    I originally published this article in January of 2012, after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Back then I was a life and business coach. Certainly my current work of facilitating writing workshops has me holding space for folks in a different way, but vicarious trauma can happen to anyone in any line of […]


  • An unexpected conversation

    An unexpected conversation

    Today I sat in community and nourishing conversation with independent business women, artists, solo practitioners—sisters in entrepreneurial endeavors. I brought with me my struggle with overwhelm and a question about finding and tending the energy needed to do my work with passion and integrity. I’m so glad I did. It was such a good conversation.

    The language of names

    We often choose a name that seems accurate for us, but that isn’t big enough to contain our entire life. Margaret J. Wheatley I’ve been thinking a lot about identity these days, as I talk with women clients. I’ve been thinking about the names we use to identify ourselves. About the ways in which those […]
