Writing Workshops and Speaking Engagements

“Love Bryn’s low-pressure, high-information teaching style.”

“She’s very organized, and she begins and ends on a positive note. Her enthusiasm is contagious.”

“After Bryn’s talk, I was inspired to start writing again.”


Bryn Donovan has published one best-selling writing reference guide, two novels, five children’s books, and two motivational books, as Bryn Donovan and as Stacey Donovan. On this blog, bryndonovan.com, her posts about writing and positivity attract 5,000 – 6,000 page views daily.

Bryn got her MFA in Creative Writing at the University of Arizona, where she taught writing workshops. She’s also led workshops at The Writers Place in Kansas City, at the Moonlight and Magnolias romance writers’ conference in Atlanta, and at corporations and libraries. She’s been a featured motivational speaker at local and national artists’ and writers’ guilds.

On a personal level, Bryn’s overcome depression to live a creative and joy-filled life. She’s an altruistic kidney donor, and her gift of a kidney to a stranger set off a chain of seven donations. She’s found down-to-earth approaches to dispelling negativity, practicing gratitude, and finding inspiration.

Some examples of Bryn’s workshops and speaking topics are below. Rates do not include travel expenses, and local groups in the Los Angeles area can negotiate a lower price. A workshop or talk can be developed especially for your group at the same rate.
