Online writing classes and writing retreats that help aspiring writers grow to their full potential.

We welcome all who desire to express themselves through the written word, no matter what their level of experience might be.

If you want to write fiction or nonfiction, poetry or screenplays, a memoir, a novel—or something that doesn’t even have a form yet—we give you a safe space where your creative spirit will flourish.

Our online writing courses and East Coast retreats for writers give you nurturing instruction and supportive community.

Stop dreaming about creative writing and start writing creatively.
