A creative writing series to wake up the senses
and stretch the brain to develop ideas into a finished writing piece. 
The purpose of these workshops are to let the participant step out
of their everyday thinking habits
and discover how to open their eyes and mind to allow their creative juices flow. 
What transpires is an opportunity to relax in a supportive environment
and through the exercises interspersed with information,
find new and interesting ways to expand, develop and use their writing skills.
And, ultimately, to discover your own unique writing style
so you can build on your strengths as a writer.


a mind-expanding experience

 Liberate your WriTiNG MuSE   
while imbibing in libations  and luscious tapas .

Let's go right of center and take a break
from thinking about your writing
to relaxing with wine and appetizers
(which will be used as inspiration for one of the exercises)
while getting in touch with the creative writer within.

This workshop is for the adventurous
who want to step away from the rule book
and play with notions that will expand
your observation skills,
put you in touch with your imagination,
and kick those blocks to the curb.

Move from linear, analytical thinking to a more
intuitive, multi-directional view of things.
Let go of what you know or think and
allow yourself to be taken on a crazy, nonsensical ride 
that will bring unexpected and rewarding results.
An open mind is essential.

Whether you're just writing for fun, stuck on a current project,
or looking for something different to do on a Sunday afternoon,
come play with us!
