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 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

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

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.

Reviewed by Barbara K. on 7/3/2018
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.
