And now a word (actually, many words)                                                                                              from Dorothy Spirus: 

Make summer plans now!  Our options for activities and interaction remain limited. But your creativity is unlimited. Join like-minded types for a weekly meeting of mental challenges, exploration, and creative stimulation.

Need help starting something?    Need help finishing something?

While many of our activities besides work-sleep-eat have been put on ice, now is an ideal time to focus on creative projects.  Maybe you’ve said, “If I only had the time to start that novel/memoir/short story/script/fill-in-the-blank creative idea I’ve been carrying around in my head for years.”  Well? It’s likely you now have the time.  At least a few minutes each day to devote to exploring your creativity. 

Joining a class will help you develop discipline to stick with your project. Meet new people! (Not as easy to do lately.) And it’s nice to have something else to think about instead of…don’t make me say it!

Expressing yourself is vital. My classes are casual, fun, and foster creativity.  But don’t take my word for it:  Read the student testimonials on this website. Questions? Just ask! Send an email today. Now! Don’t procrastinate. Yeah, I’m talkin’ to you!

Dorothy Spirus,  published writer, playwright, performer, and former magazine editor (entertainment and sports), will guide you in turning your ideas into something tangible. Check out her creative writing classes now available online, via Zoom.
