FOUR Thursday nights 6:00-9:00

 $125

Reserve your spot: , jessica.litwak@gmail.com

I am passionate about helping writers to move forward in their process and have had taught workshops in a variety of countries, and institutions. I like to encourage writers to discover their own revolutions: both inner self and outer world and inspire them towards the freedom of strong and clear self-expression. It will be an intimate group, time for one-on one contact as well as group work using a variety of writing exercises and theatre practices. 

You are welcome to bring in a new play; or to continue a work in progress; or to discuss ideas for what is not working; or what you want to write next.  

Four group meetings to work on a piece that I will help shepherd to completion; or to work on a variety of pieces in development.  Includes individual meetings with Jessica outside of class. And Peer Support Sessions with “writing buddies”.
