About this course:

Women’s stories are as diverse as women’s experiences. In this course, we focus on finding our voice on the page and allowing our writing to emerge naturally, without judgment, all in a nurturing, women- and female-identifying-empowered environment. The class is designed for writers of all levels from the new writer looking to discover her voice, to the experienced writer looking for creative inspiration. Through writing prompts, in-class writing and sharing, strength-based feedback, and simple tools and tips, we create a supportive community where every writer’s imagination is lit and nurtured. At the end of the workshop, students will leave with multiple pieces that may be seeds for future stories, develop into longer writing projects, or simply be creatively satisfying, as well as a sense of being part of an uplifting community of women writers.
