Writing Workshops Focusing on the Creative Process and International Travel
During our creative writing courses we alternate between writing, visual exercises and oral exercises because they stimulate different parts of the mind and body. We believe that getting out of your writer’s head for a few moments and into a bit of art and oral storytelling keeps the writing from getting stale. It also combats the kind of perfectionism that keeps you from writing at all.
Many writers have credited writing their first books, scripts, and memoirs to taking our interdisciplinary writing course.
A Brand New Set of Writing Tools
In this process oriented workshop you will be doing free writing, writing from guided visualizations, collaborative writing, journaling and memoir work and even some rudimentary drawing, collage and photography. The atmosphere in our creative writing classes is nurturing, inspiring, and fun.
