Nice to meet you. What a time to jump into editing my first newsletter for an events-based publication. I pride myself on my creativity, but come on! At least I’m not alone in my frustration. We’re all being forced to find creative ways to communicate, to learn, to fill our time, to avoid strangling the people we live with…
My dear friend and former [actual] neighbor, Jessica, is as creative as they come. While designing a virtual art class for her high school students, she thought others in self-quarantine might want something fun and artistic to do. Her class is low-key and free, and I invite all of you to join me (Click Here – code: 24up2ty).
I’m always looking for ways to bring together people who like to write, but I never thought about organizing a virtual writing class until I saw Jess’s. That’s how my free class, “Creative Writing While Quarantined,” was born—in the spirit of establishing a writing community during the most isolating of times (Click Here – code: j7va67f ).
This is a place for writers of all ages (well, I’d say middle school and up) and experience levels to find inspiration from prompts, reading recommendations, feedback from me, and hopefully through sharing your triumphs, challenges, and anything else related to writing. There are no rules or expectations, other than you be kind and generous in your discussions.
Do it! Write with me! Or just visit to pick up some reading recommendations. No rules, remember?
And if you’re teaching a virtual class or holding a virtual event, send us an email. We’d love to share!
Hang In There,
