I wrote my first published memoir because of this class. The instructors are magicians! They gently pushed us into discovering our unique creativity.

The Creativity Workshop Will Help You

  • Learn practical techniques to ignite your creativity and imagination.

  • Get over writer's block, and paralyzing self-criticism

  • Find new sources of inspiration in everyday life

  • Establish a 15 minute a day creativity practice to accomplish these goals


Let Your Imagination Lead the Way

During our creative classes 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 workshop.

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 workshops is nurturing, inspiring, and fun.
