Get your writing in shape in 3 weeks – offered seasonally (GROUP sessions) & now INDIVIDUALLY ON DEMAND.
Want to jump start a writing project or to revive your writing practice?
Though there is no one way to write, writers who follow a regimen produced 9 times the quantity and quality of those who write occasionally and in big blocks of time. Studies show that people can improve the quantity and quality of their writing by writing regularly, by tracking their time, and by being accountable to someone.
Why 21 days? Three weeks is often cited as the time needed to change behavior. While experts disagree on how just long it takes to develop a new habit, many people see 21 days as a comfortable period to build and maintain a new routine because it is manageable and requires low commitment.
Come join the Challenge and learn what it takes to cultivate the habit of writing and to see what works for your life and schedule. Resources and support are provided by regular emails with tips and strategies; opportunities to share your progress and difficulties; several group check-in meetings via Zoom, and unlimited email access to me, the instructor.

$75 — Eight sessions, offered Thursdays, 7-9 pm, Oct 19 – Dec 14 (no class 11/23).
NOTE: This class has been combined with the Advanced one – the Basics will still be covered, with much more materials and opportunity to learn and polish writing skills.
Taught entirely online, this class will offer similar material in my in-person Continuing Education program, but will provide opportunities for those out of the area to experience the same curriculum, including practical exercises and strategies to inspire and improve and share your work in a supportive environment.
Description: So you’ve always wanted to write a book or you’ve always written something-stories, letters, a journal? Perhaps there is a story you’ve always wanted to tell? In addition to mini-lectures on elements and techniques of writing, the virtual class will consist of large and small group discussion and exercises to connect with your creativity and to hone your skills. Online resources available outside of class.
Cost is $75. Registration required.
“I began to see that about
half the student's battle is learning basic skills,
while the other half involves
tapping into imagination, memory and
a singular view of life and the world,
a view no one else shares until you put it into words.”
Annie Bernays co-author of What If?
