Give the Gift of Writing

Give the gift of writing to a loved one with a gift certificate for Write From The Heart writing workshops for adults, children and teensThe workshops, taught in an atmosphere of warmth, compassion and trust, encourage us to dodge perfectionism, trust our instincts and learn how playfulness brings creativity and joy into our lives. They are a safe haven for experienced writers and first-timers, alike, especially those who long to overcome self-doubt. 


In 2001, Melissa Greene created Write From The Heart to share her belief that writing, without fear, has the power to console, illuminate and heal. Her whimsical, be-who-you-are workshops awaken the creative spirit, gently, without intimidation. There are no grades, grammar, punctuation or spelling. She teaches year-round classes for all ages and leads workshops for cancer patients at Lancaster General Health and the Penn State Cancer Institute.  


“Writing requires us to be kind to ourselves. It’s our chance to slow down, reflect, and get back in touch with the soul. Besides that, it’s fun,” enthuses Greene.
