What you'll learn in this creative writing class:

In the peaceful atmosphere of the Saturday workshop, and with the help of meditations that quiet the critical mind, writing becomes possible, cathartic, transformational. You can write memoir or fiction. Each workshop is focused around an inspirational theme or myth. You’ll write three times for about one hour each time, and receive constructive, respectful feedback on your work. You’ll surprise yourself by the material you’ll be producing. 

Experienced and beginning writers are welcome.

Vegetarian/vegan lunch included, and teas and snacks.


Please bring a notebook and pen, or a laptop.

I thoroughly enjoyed Elana's Creative Writing Workshop! I was able to dive deep and write from my heart because of the encouragement I received in the workshop. This support and guidance was provided by Elana to all the students taking the class. At the end of the day, I was delighted at what I had achieved, and touched by what others had shared in their writings. I came away realizing how much we all have in common, despite having come from very diverse backgrounds. I highly recommend Elana's Creative Writing Workshop! Five stars!

What a great class! I really appreciate the space that Elana holds for her students, always encouraging us to journey further along the edges and deeper into the undergrowth of the stories we are calling into being. The other writers in the space were incredibly welcoming and helped me tap into new facets of confidence as well. The loving energy that Elana nurtures in her classes is a powerful writing elixir!
