Tiny Love StoriesIn this four-week class we will read different types of prose, we will write original pieces, and we will workshop and revise our work. The theme I chose for this class “Love Stories” will be the theme of our readings and writings. We will explore and consider love in its different forms as an act of curiosity, exploration,be it the love of writing or the love in our different relationships, the love of places or things, people or whatever you choose to write about. This is a generative craft workshop: in-class writing exercises and immediate feedback will help inspire and hone your writing process. By the end, you'll have a short piece of writing for yourself or to share.
Writing From LifeIn this six week class we will share stories about ourselves or the women in our lives. Marriages, childhood, affairs, death--this is what lives are made of. How do we write about relationships? We will read and write, learn how to craft our own memories or experiences (or those of others) into a work of creative nonfiction.

From Here to There: Journeys, Travels, and ChangesIn this six-week class we will explore the idea of journeys, both inward and outward, and then write fiction and memoir about some of the important journeys we have taken in our lives. Remember, one does not have to have traveled to have journeyed! Many of us think of travel and we think of a train journey or trek across a foreign land or up a mountain, but the last two years have changed things. What does it mean to "travel" during isolation? How do we depart our circumstances during lockdown? What kinds of journeys do we take when we don't actually go anywhere?
