Spring! This can be your time to plant seeds of creativity. Begin by exploring imaginative forms of writing in a supportive environment. Fun prompts will help circumvent the analytic brain and give creativity a chance to thrive. You’ll find new ways to free up memories and use them as inspiration for memoir, fiction, poems, creative nonfiction or journal-writing. Hallmarks of the workshop include in-class assignments, opportunity to read your writing—or not, as you choose—and receive feedback to identify your writing strengths. You’ll also receive tips on how to continue writing after the workshop concludes. Please bring something to write or type with to the first class.

She has published short fiction, judged the national Poetry Out Loud recitation contest, and directed a Dylan Thomas play with 18 actors playing 60 parts.
