Student and Adult Writers Workshops
We believe that people of all ages have imaginations that are free and exciting. When given the opportunity, we come at story creation with an attitude of omnipotent benevolence.

Those drawn to the writing craft remind us that writing is indeed an art, and how sometimes, when working with a creative soul, rules are meant to be bent in order to make the story more fun!

We coach adult writers to focus on a singular phase in their lifetime, rather than attempt to encompass every year of their lives on the page. We help them to hone their writer's voice and tell the stories of their lifetime, leaving a legacy for family and friends.
