~NEW CLASS! Writing as Healing: The Power of Personal Stories~
This class, taught by veteran writer and teacher Roxanne Sadovsky, MA, MFA, uses journaling, life-writing (stories based on personal experience), short fiction, and visionary creative nonfiction (stories based on what we'd like the future to look like) in order to encourage personal and/or community exploration and healing.
Creative Writing is well recognized as a powerful tool for encouraging self-awareness, empathy, and personal change. Read more about this outstanding class here:

Overwhelmed by the mere thought? Don't know where to start? No matter where you fall in the spectrum, if you're tired of struggling with cash-flow momentum and publishing rejection, this class will enable you to build profits and clips. For more info. click here:
