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. 

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 or Thursday 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 and Thursdays: 1:15 pm-4:15 pm

Note:
We also have Saturday Creative Writing Workshop. To know more about it, please click here

It was good but not for me

I have been looking for a writing course that had more personal focus, time to write, and time for feedback. I love the reflection time as well. Feedback is supportive, expansive, opening and encouraging. Going back to continue, as I had been stalled for awhile. This course has me reinspired and excited about writing and discovering what arises from our creative well.

Elana is a great teacher. I found her meditations and short readings inspirational. She pushed me to keep going with my writing and gave me some ideas for a plot and main characters development.

I have worked with Elana in her Writing Studio for several years, My writing skills have flourished under Elana's gentle, encouraging and inspired tutelage. She is a truly talented writer, editor, mentor and writing coach. Going to one of her writing classes or spending a day in a private session is like going away to a spiritual retreat. I cannot recommend her highly enough and would give her ten stars is that was available!
