Creative Clarity, Focus and Momentum

July 19 - August 2, 2023 Wednesdays, 5:30-7:30 p.m. (3 sessions)
925 SW Washington Street Portland, OR 97205


In this supportive workshop, you will learn creative process skills for sticking with a writing project from initial idea to completion. If you dream of writing that novel or finishing that poem, but you feel scattered, overwhelmed, or stuck with many beginnings but no finished product, this workshop will offer you gentle and effective ways to work through creative blocks so you can finally share your creative expression with your readers. The parts of the creative process that you might dread or avoid can actually be meaningful and fun! You’ll come away from this workshop with focus, confidence, and a personalized project completion map. All genres welcome.

We want our writing classes and Delves to be accessible to everyone, regardless of income and background. We understand that our tuition structure can present obstacles for some people.
