Welcome to our inspiring world of writing workshops! Whether you’re an aspiring novelist, a seasoned poet, a business professional looking to enhance your writing skills, or someone who simply wants to explore the art of creative expression, our workshops offer a nurturing and stimulating environment for writers of all levels.

When I look back through my life, my unhappiest times were those when I was not actively creating. 

I offer a variety of writing opportunities including workshops, groups, and 1:1 mentoring.

All of my offerings focus on creative expression. They are not about creating a masterpiece, they are about the experience of creating.

Let me guide you through practices that are designed to help you to embrace your own creative power.

Why choose Open Sky Stories writing workshops?

I believe that everyone has a unique voice and story to tell. My workshops are designed to:

1. Ignite Creativity:

Unleash your inner creativity in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere. Our workshops provide a space to explore your imagination, experiment with different writing styles, and discover new ideas.

2. Foster a Writing Community:

Connect with like-minded individuals who share your passion for writing. My workshops and writing groups are not only about honing your craft but also about building lasting relationships with fellow writers who can provide inspiration and support throughout your journey.

3. Overcome Writer’s Block:

Stuck in a creative rut? My workshops are designed to help you overcome writer’s block, offering prompts, exercises, and techniques to jumpstart your creativity and keep your ideas flowing.

4. Promote Fun:

There’s a longstanding myth that writing needs to be painful and hard. I challenge this in all of my workshops and mentorship programs. I want to help you create a writing practice that you enjoy. Together we’ll find the fun and joy that comes out of writing.
