Creative Writing Workshop in Carlsbad – Let’s Get Creative!

Hello, San Diego!


Add some creativity to your week.


Writing Workshop San Diego

This long-standing in-person generative, creative writing workshop that originally started in Los Angeles, now also takes place in Carlsbad (see nearest cross streets here).

Tap into your creative side, generate prose that will surprise you, and learn a few things along the way.

  • Generate new writings from original prompts every meeting
  • Generate new writings from original prompts every meeting
  • Participate from anywhere
  • Get excited again about writing
  • Come away with new material
  • Try your hand at different kinds of writing
  • Learn to write better scenes
  • No long-term commitments – come to any session you’d like

Our creative writing workshops take place in Carlsbad and online and are not lecture-based; we get right down to writing. We choose writing prompts based on either a theme of the week, education, craft, or creative value. While we do not offer critique in this workshop — as each piece you write is so new — but we do offer much-needed and undervalued positive reinforcement around the potential of each piece you write.  Through original and surprising prompts and craft discussions, you’ll write pages you never would have otherwise and you will learn creative writing tools along the way.

Come to any session you’d like, the prompts are different each time.
