What you'll learn in this creative writing class:

In this class, you will learn first and foremost that you can write—and write well! In fact you will surprise yourself by the work you’ll be producing.


The class is designed to enhance your creativity, imagination and personal voice while also teaching the skills of creative writing—memoir and fiction.

This is an ongoing class geared toward those who are committed to writing and will continue this practice overtime. You don’t have to be an experienced writer; it’s okay if you have never written before, but it will be beneficial for you to have some level of commitment to writing.

We use calming meditations to quiet the critical mind, and music, literature and myths to inspire the creative process.

In the safety of the writing group, we take one moment from our lives and enter it fully.  We slow down and look at it through the lens of the writer, allowing the story to emerge from the silence within.  Learning to follow rather than lead the story our writing is fresh, free, original, unexpected.

The Writing Studio is a safe haven for writers from all countries and religions, all ages and lifestyles. Experienced and beginning writers are welcome, and this includes people for whom English is not their first language.

Classes are limited to seven (7) writers. Please bring a notebook and pen, or a laptop.

The weekly classes are ongoing and can be started any Monday or Thursday evening, or any Wednesday afternoon. If needed, you will be able to schedule other dates directly with the studio.

Mondays and Thursdays: 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm 
Wednesdays: 1:15 pm-4:15 pm

Question from Hira S.
Hi! Is it possible to register for the 4-week Wednesday afternoon course if I will be out of town for the first session, but leaving town before the last session of the next Wednesday afternoon series? Could I come to a Monday or Thursday night class week 1 and do the next 3 weeks on Wednesday afternoon?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Hira! The school suggests that you enroll in the evening class instead of the afternoon class. There is more room in the evening classes. You can also take the Monday or Thursday evening class. To answer your question, yes you can do that. Hope this helps!

I was looking for something casual and welcoming in a class. I’ve had trouble even journaling, but Elena offers just enough guidance and her non-judgmental attitude relaxes me. It’s not a classroom setting, but there is some serious creativity from others, and I leave feeling lighter, inspired, and excited to write.
