This summer: write your story! These online classes are your opportunity to craft your emotional truth through the art of storytelling. Learn to honor your desire to author the stories only you can write. I will teach you to prioritize your voice, allow your imagination to flourish, and dream into the words that reveal the facts and fictions of human experience.
I’m an author and a writing instructor with over 20 years of experience. You will leave class with more confidence about writing and a deeper understanding of who you are, why you are, and the importance of the stories that you must tell.
We create the story of our lives.
