Writing as a Gift

In this workshop for adults and teens, you can work on a unique and memorable gift of writing for family and friends this holiday season. If you attended our November workshop, you’ll be invited to share what you’ve been working on since then.  If you’re a new participant, you’ll look at examples of writing given as gifts and respond to prompts that will help you create your own writing gifts. Writers should expect to come away with drafts of writing that can be polished and gifted. Register below.   Fill out my Wufoo form!

Noise Permit: Drawing Ideas

Yen Azzaro will teach you how to draw upon the ideas you see in your mind and capture them on paper.
