where we keep your creative juices flowing

These dates and locations in Europe are estimates and subject to change. Anyone interested in attending one of the European workshops must write to me directly at


Fall 2018 schedule and location has not been set yet . . .

If you are interested in signing up for a committed 8 week class in the fall, please write to me today so I’ll put your name on my mailing list and let you know as soon as I have set the dates.

With the technology of online meetings we’ll be implementing small writing groups (4 participants at a time) for a 90 minute session. I’m hoping to begin beta testing these virtual live workshops in early 2019. Please write to me if you are interested in participating

I participated in Deborah Bluestein's weekly writing workshops at Juiceboxartists in Somerville, Massachusetts for approximately five years from the spring of 2006 until the studio's close in 2011.  Deborah is an amazing facilitator with a gift for nurturing a safe, uniquely eclectic and warm environment that allows our deep, creative selves the freedom to play and explore.  Her writing prompts are incredibly varied and use all of the senses to awaken the imagination.  Her feedback is both gently nurturing and at the same time continually challenging, in the sense that she calls on the writer to put forth the effort required in crafting and revising creative work.  I cannot recommend Deb Bluestein as a writing teacher, coach, and creative guru highly enough!  She is a fairy godmother to all creative spirits, calling them forth to come out, play, and express themselves freely and she also understands both personally and professionally the actual work of writing and how to get oneself to engage in it.  She is a magnificent gift!
