Creative Writing Workshop near Oceanside – Let’s Get Creative!

Hello, San Diego!


Add some creativity to your week.


Writing Workshop near Oceanside

This long-standing in-person generative, creative writing workshop that originally started in Los Angeles, now also takes place in Carlsbad, right near Oceanside (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 each session
  • Get writing tips and learn what’s working in your writing and why
  • Reignite your passion for writing
  • Write for two hours and come away with new material
  • Try your hand at different kinds of writing
  • Learn tips and tricks for writing better scenes and narratives.
  • Held in a private residence near Oceanside, CA (South Carlsbad)

This creative writing workshop near Oceanside (in Carlsbad) is 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 any Sunday you’d like, the prompts are different every week.
