“My main challenge in writing has been self-censorship/judgment of my own work. Before joining the workshop, I was a little skeptical about whether two afternoons of ‘Simply Writing’ sessions would transform my writing skills in any meaningful way; I was wrong. It was transformational to see the kind of creativity, vulnerability and imagination people in the group demonstrated in just two afternoons. The contribution of this class to my development cannot be measured by what I wrote for the class, but by what I learned (including from others in the group) about how to be more comfortable with my own writing. After this workshop, I started writing – simply writing – and I am loving it.
“Thank you to Lisa, and to all the members of our cohort, for a wonderful weekend of creativity and connection.”
