THE WORD PARTY is a weekly drop-in class focusing on improvisational writing. Inspired in part by the work of Julia Cameron ("The Artist's Way") and Natalie Goldberg ("Writing Down the Bones"), it uses verbal games and in-class writing exercises to help stimulate creativity and generate new ideas. Offering a friendly, humorous environment for anyone who enjoys writing, THE WORD PARTY is open to writers of all levels. Each session features a variety of writing games and assignments lasting between five and twenty minutes. By writing non-stop, without lifting pen from paper (or fingers from keys), the internal critic is silenced and the unconscious mind gets a welcome chance to play. (You may be amazed at what you come up with!) Afterward, participants have the option of sharing what they've written, but are never under any pressure to do so. This is an enjoyable resource for fiction writers, journal-keepers, poets, dramatists, comedians, and songwriters. Get past blocks, find new inspiration, meet kindred spirits, have a great time!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
