These uplifting, be-who-you-are workshops awaken the creative spirit, gently, without intimidation. Taught in an atmosphere of warmth, whimsy, and trust, they are a safe haven for experienced and first-timers, alike, especially those who long to write more freely, by overcoming perfectionism and self-doubt. There are no grades, grammar, or competition; no punctuation, spelling, or red pen. For writing, without fear, has the power to console, illuminate, and heal.
