Teacher: Nicole Criona

What you'll learn in this creative writing class:

Add some creativity to your week from the comfort of your own home.

This long-standing in-person generative (est. in 2003), creative writing workshop, which took place in West Hollywood, CA, for 15 years, has switched to an online format, so you can now join us from anywhere.

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

Writes of any genre and any skill level are welcome, and you can use the prompts to write any genre.

  • Generate new writings from original writing prompts every meeting
  • Get writing tips and learn what's working in your writing and why
  • Get excited again about writing
  • Come away with new material
  • Try your hand at different kinds of writing
  • Meet other writers

These workshops are not lecture-based. We get right down to writing. We choose your writing prompts based on either a theme of the week, education, craft, or creative value. There is no critique (as each piece you write is so new), only much-needed positive reinforcement around the potential of each piece you write. You will also receive tips and tricks for writing better narratives. Through original and surprising prompts and craft discussions, you'll write pages you never would have otherwise and learn creative writing tools along the way.

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Refund Policy
Cancellations made at least 7 days prior to the first meeting night of the workshop will be honored with a refund.

It was my first time ever trying to write. The exercises given where nice and fun to do even though English isn’t my first language. The host created a very positive and safe space to explore your own writing. I learned a lot and feel like exploring writing further.

I wasn't sure what to expect but I was genuinely very pleased with the course. Nicole was a great instructor; she created a very inviting environment. The other two students present had been to the class before but they made me feel welcome immediately.
