No matter where you live, you can take a writing class! And it’s truly affordable. Choose from:
Online classes are held via Zoom, a videoconferencing system that’s as simple to operate as clicking a link (assuming your computer or phone has a camera and a mic). Once you’ve registered, a link to access the the class will be emailed to you.
If you live in the Central New York area, consider taking an in-person class. The Always Wanted To Write Studio is located in Syracuse, NY, inside the historic Delavan Center, a former iron carriage factory turned artists’ warehouse.
The AWTW Studio has been described as “magical,” “soothing,” and “a space I never want to leave.” I call it my adult tree fort, decorated with hanging paper lanterns, original fine art (ranging from my Delavan neighbors all the way to a friend on the Isle of Skye in Scotland), and displaying 180 linear feet of shelf space — a custom-designed library wall of books.
From the overstuffed purple chairs and a hideous (but nap-alicious) turquoise recliner to the table seating five (where I teach), it’s a place that welcomes any writer at any level, even if you’re an absolute beginner.
A few times a year I offer writing overnights, weekends, retreats or immersion workshops. These I call offsite classes and they offer a change of pace from the usual writing routine.
