The Meditate/Create Workshop is currently on hiatus.

Ongoing workshops meet weekly. Space is limited. Application and work sample required for admission. Once accepted, a free audit session may be scheduled pre-registration. Participants pay on a monthly basis, and may discontinue at any time with advance notice.

The weekly sessions offer high-level instruction to impart the skills that make each writer be the best they can be. Each workshop includes a focus on the process of writing and respect for the individual voice. The ongoing nature of the workshops allows writers to settle into long-term projects and form a community in which there is continuity and depth.

Through my participation in The Art of Prose Workshop I have been able to cultivate my writing process in a manner that involves deep listening. I have developed the ability to listen to the stories, characters, and the environments that want to be written. I have discovered the voices of my writing and have learned to trust their direction. Though I have surrendered to the task of multiple revisions, I have gained the insight to attend to those stories that seek my attention.
