“The world about us would be desolate except for the world within us”
~ Wallace Stevens
Bring your creative license and explore the possibilities of written expression! In these classes, we discuss different narrative elements and forms as we approach writing with a creative instinct and critical eye. Genre experimentation, improvisational composition, and exemplary prose and poetry guide us on our literary journey. Recent topics include: character building, flash and speculative fiction, memory and loss, image-based writing, “choose your own adventure stories,” and “poetry is/poetry ain’t.” These classes are fun, engaging, and inspiring, and designed to help participants discover new vistas for self and creative expression.
I adapt my curriculum to the composition, experience, and general disposition of each class and offer classes for children, teens, and adults. The animating spirit and intention driving these efforts remains the same regardless of age group: to provide a safe, encouraging, and dynamic space for reflection, inspiration, and connection. Please keep reading for specific course and event descriptions and logistical information!

Please feel free to spread the word about my classes to community members to whom they might be of interest or relevance.

Thank you – I appreciate the assistance and endorsement!
“A writer is a writer not because she writes well and easily, because she has amazing talent, because everything she does is golden. In my view, a writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any signs of promise, you keep writing anyway.”
