Free Online Classes

~ Unleash the Writer Within ~
Free Community Sessions – Starting in June!

I offer free sessions of “Unleash the Writer Within.” These sessions give you a sampling of my longer multi-week online classes, while also providing me with a way to give back to the community.

These free sessions are held online via a platform called Zoom. Each class offers a craft lesson and writing jump-start. The classes are small and intimate, limited to 6 participants, so be sure to save your spot.

Here’s how the free sessions run:

    For each session, we’ll engage in 2 – 3 writing exercises and prompts, usually using poems as our inspiration. Experience the thrill of getting fresh ink on the page. See what stories you’ve been carrying around. Get them down on paper. And see how you can develop them further.
    ~~~~~ ~~~~~
    Learn some aspect of writing craft or form. Use this knowledge to shape and hone your material toward a working draft.

When nurtured properly, the pieces you start in class can become fleshed out — eventually ready to submit. I’ve used this practice to sustain a writing career that has slowly blossomed into published essays, short stories, flash fiction and more. Let me show you how so you can, too.

Check out the available dates below and register if you have a desire to write, hone, and publish.

All classes are held on Zoom. Each class is limited to 6 participants.
