 Natural Awakenings Lancaster-Berks

Creative Writing Workshops for Adults, Children and Teens

Jul 30, 2014 07:54AM


Melissa Greene, a published fiction writer, poet and professional writing mentor, leads year-round Write From The Heart Creative Writing Workshops for adults, children and teens. Classes emphasize the love of writing, not a cookie-cutter technique, and are free from grades, tests, competition and other sources of stress. All workshops take place at Greene’s Lancaster studio, an uplifting, urban-style loft.

The fall schedule begins with several five-week women’s workshops, each running from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The introductory class starts on September 9; fiction begins September 10; and memoir writing, September 11. Children meet from 1 to 3 p.m. on September 20, October 11 and 25 and November 1. Teens are scheduled from 1 to 3 p.m., September 27, October 18 and November 15 and 22. Greene leads workshops for men from 2 to 4 p.m., September 21, October 12 and 26 and November 9. One-on-one sessions and a Women’s Grief and Loss workshop are also available.

All classes promise a fun, non-intimidating experience to inspire freer, happier and more confident writers. Greene guides students to appreciate the role of intuition and passion in the creative process, enjoy beauty and detail and find writing inspiration in everyday surroundings.

Preregistration is required, with Jul. registration recommended. Discounts are available for multi-session registrants and same-session siblings. For fees, location details and more information, call 717 393-4713, email [email protected] or visit
