Teacher: Nicole Criona

What you'll learn in this creative writing class:

Tap into your creative side, write work that will surprise you, and learn a few things along the way.
  • Generate new writing from original prompts every Sunday
  • Get writing tips and learn what’s working in your writing and why
    Get excited again about writing
  • Write for two hours and come away with new material
  • Try your hand at different kinds of writing.
These workshops are not lecture-based. We get right down to writing. We choose prompts based on either a theme of the week, education, craft, or creative value. There is no critique (as each piece you write is so new)–only much-needed positive reinforcement around the potential of each piece you write. 

You will also receive tips and tricks for writing better narratives. Through original and surprising prompts and craft discussions, you’ll write pages you never would have otherwise and learn creative writing tools along the way.

Open to all writers of all experience levels and all genres. This workshop is not appropriate for kids.

Refund Policy
Cancellations made at least 7 days prior to the first meeting night of the workshop will be honored with a refund.
