"This class was one of the best courses I have done. It gave me new insight, as well as practical experience, into writing prose which is alive with concrete images. Barbara's guidance and enabling feedback pushed my writing to a new level. I highly recommend it."
Inspiration is one of the most mysterious elements of the writer's journey—but the truth is, we don't have to sit around and wait. We can learn practical techniques for seeing differently, and for accessing our own perspective and creativity.
