Upcoming Writing Classes
where we keep your creative juices flowing

We are partnering with the Fenway Community Center on Boylston Street (close to Fenway Park) to resume live workshops. The first
7-class series (limited to 12 participants) will be on Monday nights from 7-9 p.m.
Meeting dates are:
September 16, September 30, October 7, October 28, November 4, and November 18. Cost for the seven session series is $280. If needed, sliding scale can be applied to tuition. One scholarship is available.

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!

Our early 2019 international online workshop (we had participants from Barcelona and other locations outside of Massachusetts) was well attended. We met in the Zoom.us classroom and followed the guidelines for AWA workshops. Online workshop (limited to 6 participants) schedules are determined by the time zone considerations of the writers. Depending upon interest and time zone conflict, we may hold more that one group.

First online session starts on September 28
This class is sold out!

Here is the schedule for 5 meetings that will take place on every other Saturday beginning on Saturday, September 28. The cost for all five sessions is $150. We’ve set the time for 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. East coast time so that writers from Europe and the west coast can join in. Meeting dates: September 28, October 12, October 26, November 9, and November 23.

If you want to join the next online group, let us know.

In the words of recent online participants:

Carrie in Philly—The online writing workshop enabled and inspired me to take my writing to new places—to write in ways, to experiment with writing—using as yet unexplored techniques.

Gabriella in Barcelona—I love Deborah´s style of teaching. She is very positive and encouraging. She creates a safe atmosphere where students can exchange ideas and give feedback to each other. I specially liked the variety of prompts and exercises she uses in her sessions. I definitely saw an improvement in my writing while taking her course online.

Haixia in Barcelona—This is a new and exciting adventure of exploring myself, and living. The images in the past become more vivid and clear when I write.
