"The wonderful play goes on, and you must contribute a verse ..." Walt Whitman

Why write? We all have stories hidden inside us waiting for expression. Writing - whether fact or fiction, poetry or prose - honors and helps us find meaning in daily life as well as allowing us to share our creativity with others. When we write, tuning in to outer events and inner feelings, we heighten moments and images that might otherwise be lost or unnoticed.

In my workshops, I offer permission and support for your writing self to emerge, to journey to the destination of your choice. As I tell my students, no one else could ever tell your story. It is not a contest to see who writes best; it is an opportunity to explore in your own voice wherever the pen - and the Muse - guides you.
