This creative writing workshop 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.

If you are interested in receiving critique or guidance on your book project, please check out our Private Coaching or our First-Draft Incubator.

Come any Sunday you’d like, the prompts are different every week.
