Natalie Goldberg's book Writing Down the Bones cracked open how the craft of writing was taught in our country. Each week we’ll study this classic text together, then apply the wisdom we glean to timed writing sessions.

Writing with Prompts:
Crafting Stories through the Side Door
Prompts encourage you to approach big topics in your writing - love, death, family, addiction, health - through "the side door." The resulting stories read fresh and wildly creative.
This fall join a 8-week writing group with local writer Sarah Cyr and learn the practice of writing with prompts. Each week you’ll find community and support through facilitated discussion and small group writing. Prompts given will encourage memoir/creative non-fiction writing.
“When I signed up for Sarah’s class, I had little motivation to be creative in my personal time and seemingly no time to write. I’ve now found a way to access my creativity again with an active writing practice. Sarah makes her students feel capable and connected to a larger community of writers." - Shelby
"Sarah's authenticity and commitment to this particular writing process remain with me as a beacon of hope in the messy, muddy process of birthing my own voice." - Chelsea
