Melissa Greene

Melissa Greene, writer, teacher and owner of Write From The Heart Creative Writing Workshops, will host a three-week series, Women’s Very Merry Holiday Writing Retreat: Write & Relax!, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., November 28, December 5 and 12. In addition, her winter 2018 class schedule for adults, children, teens, cancer patients and caregivers is now available. Gift certificates can be purchased to present to friends and family during the holiday season.

Classes will take place at the Write From The Heart studio and The Lancaster General Health/Penn Medicine Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute, both located in Lancaster, as well as at The Milton S. Hershey Medical Center/Penn State Cancer Institute, in Hershey.

Greene’s uplifting, be-who-you-are workshops awaken the creative spirit, gently, without intimidation. Taught in an atmosphere of warmth, whimsy and trust, they are a safe haven for experienced and first-timers, alike, especially those who long to write more freely by overcoming perfectionism and self-doubt. No grades, grammar or competition. No punctuation, spelling or red pen. Sharing is optional, mischief a must.

“Writing is a conscious decision to slow down and reflect, to get in touch with the soul. It has nothing to do with regimentation, data or following the crowd,” notes Greene. Writing is our greatest freedom, a return to self.”
