Creative Writer's Boot Camp


Deepen your writing practice and develop compassionate self-editing techniques in this workshop designed to help you silence the inner critic and release the stories within.


What you can learn.

  • Develop your personalized writing practice to further progress on your work
  • Design a 30-day plan focused on a specific writing project or goal
  • Discuss writing craft subjects to help you focus your writing and revising
  • Disengage from your cruel inner critic to empower compassionate self-editing techniques

About this course:

In this six week workshop, writers develop a productive writing practice and deepen their knowledge of the craft of writing. In this course, we design achievable thirty-day plans for success with a writing project and develop skills for recognizing and neutralizing the undermining powers of resistance and the inner critic. We also focus on the art of craft (plot, character, and voice) and devote time to the practice of compassionate self-critique. Class sessions include time for in-class writing, revision, and safe, supportive feedback.
