You'd like to write, but don't know how to begin?

In this workshop, you'll learn the fundamentals of creative writing,
using images, objects, words and phrases as prompts to get your creative juices flowing
and hone your writing muscle.
You'll learn basics such as cultivating awareness,
keeping notebooks, mining your own life, taking yourself out on artist dates,
and reading like a writer.

Feedback from past participants:

"Very nice and respectful atmosphere."

"Wonderful thoughts and tasks for beginners and also for the beginner in all of us."

"I liked the writing prompts a lot, especially with the focus on not putting the pen down and just keep going even if the sentences are not perfect or are seemingly arbitrary."

"This was a really nice introduction into creative writing for a beginner like me and I’m really looking forward to incorporating the techniques you talked about and of course to attending future workshops and readings."

"This is the first time I did a creative writing workshop and I felt really good during it. The topics to write about were really inspiring to me and hearing the drafts and thoughts of the others was really helpful. I really want to keep on writing now."
