The author Flannery O'Connor once noted, "I write because I don't know what I think until I read what I say."

This 8-week writing workshop is designed for people who are looking for a safe space for inner exploration in a welcoming environment that we create together. The class includes writing tips, feedback on written work, assignments outside of class, and sharing work when writers are ready. Bonus!
