NEW Teen class

Letters to a Young Writer: What It Takes to Be an Artist


July 20, 2020-July 24, 2020



Online—Live Meeting

So you've decided to be a writer! What's next? Being a writer takes creativity and attention to the world wherever you go!


In one week, our class will write a lot! But we will also explore the writing lifestyle and what it takes to be a writer. We'll explore how to find inspiration, how to create your own writing space, how to develop your own voice by hearing from a vast cast of diverse writers, and we'll learn how to build a writing community by creating our own workshop group for the week.


Students will submit 2-5 pages of poetry, essay, or fiction to be workshopped in a class setting. Each student will receive a 1-page letter of response and critique from teaching artist.


Note: This class is for serious writers who are in the process of working on their own creative writing projects.

NEW course

Coming soon...


I'm so excited to be developing my own  creative writing courses--think verse novel, poetry! More details coming soon...
