Create the story of your life with Dr. Stephanie Han

Writing is happiness. Joy on the page. When we write we are free to express who we are and why we are. Writing encourages us to be playful, curious, rebellious, and honest. Writing asserts our right to be.

Learn to write the story you want to tell.

Explore the art of creative writing. These intimate online classes are designed to offer a fun and meaningful experience in a supportive environment.

I’ll teach you to figure out your story and give you the tools to write it.

We create the story of our lives.

Stephanie has an incredible mastery of words… She is also an inspired communicator. I was a student in several of her writing workshops and walked away with a new appreciation for the craft. I'd take more of her courses if I could!

Some teachers teach. Some transform. Stephanie Han is both at their best. Attending her weekly class was the absolute highlight of my week. In that classroom, she drew us into a storied world that she carefully wove together, in which we were all participants and creators. Stephanie’s classes are versatile, lively, transformative, caring, and well-researched. She showed me the power of storytelling, and how to continue discovering stories of others and my own, on paper and in life.

Dr. Han believed in me and my potential for growth, and it’s because of this that I had the motivation to continue challenging myself and learning, in English and all aspects of life.
