"This past summer I felt really stuck. You created a motivational atmosphere, and it was great to be with other people who really wanted to write."
Beginning in April, workshops will be held via Zoom, an online video conferencing platform.
Workshop format is the same; writing prompts, followed by quiet writing time (5-20minutes), sharing and short discussions. On line sessions will last about 1.5 hours.
Schedule beginning April 1:
Mondays: 6:30pm – 8pm
In-person workshops are on hold until (hopefully) May.
Workshops run for 6 weeks, meeting once a week. We meet at my home in Long Beach. I provide light snacks and drink.
Fee for workshop is $140 and is due before workshop begins.
Please review payment policies before registration and contact me for questions.
