If you love to write creatively but struggle with finding the time, motivation and perseverance to complete projects, you are not alone! All of us were born with a natural desire to create, but our adult lifestyles can sap much of the joy, freedom and lightness from our early impulses.
Get back in in touch with your creative headspace by exploring both the barriers to creativity and the strategies that help you re-connect with your passion for writing. Each class touches on a particular barrier to creativity and offers concrete strategies to address it. We then dive into writing, reading and discussing a short piece of fiction or poetry before enjoying meditative time to write.
This class is ideal for poets and fiction writers who want to get back in touch with their writing practice. It's also a great course for writers in the midst of working on longer projects for which they're having trouble sustaining momentum.
"I loved everything about this class! It was exactly what it said and more! I haven’t written much since college creative writing classes and this helped me find inspiration and gave me tools to continue to write instead of letting it fall away again!" - AW, fall 2019 student
"Jaime identified common 'blocks' to creativity and strategies for combatting them and finding inspiration. She provided time during every class session to do some creative writing as well as opportunities to receive feedback on writing projects. Before this class I hadn't been writing for years, and now I am writing almost everyday." - Amanda M, fall 2019 student
"Her teaching skills, organization, how she motivated students and lead us, sharing her experience on point. She has a lot of great tips to follow that I seriously will take in consideration, the class was all about sharing knowledge, examples and great moments." - Norma T, fall 2018 student
