Creative and essay writing in an informal atmosphere. We will explore words, phrases, sentences, organization, characterization, story, journalism, and poetry in writing. Each meeting will include a short lecture and an activity to inspire expression. There is writing homework every week which can range from the minimum to the moon, depending on the student. Some writing experience required. Reluctant writers are welcome.

Erin Chianese is a teacher, published author, and former homeschooling mom to 2 daughters who have graduated from college.

This is a drop-off class, but as always, parents are invited to stay and observe.

To sign up one child, please RSVP as yourself; to sign up two children, RSVP +1 guest, etc.

    I signed up on the waiting list but now it says that I owe money. Does that mean I got in? This is my first class here so I don't yet know the routine.

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.
