The Expressive Writer
If you are compelled to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and need guidance on how to write the plays and/or prose within you with greater honesty, depth and liveliness, look no further! I am here to help and provide quality feedback that will tease the writing out of you and help you bring it to the next level.
The list of workshops below is a sample of the courses that I currently conduct. I am willing to adapt these workshops or devise new ones according to the needs of each client. Please email me immediately for more information as well as to find out about rates and arrange for one-on-one and/or group classes.
