Calendar runs for 52 weeks

If you've always wanted to write but have no idea where to start, this course will demystify the process for you. You'll get a taste of the writing life, improve your writing skills, and develop new ways to stretch your creative muscles. This exciting, hands-on course for the creative writing novice is filled with challenging exercises, expert advice, and plenty of direct support and encouragement. As you work your way through the lessons, you'll develop your own short, creative fiction or nonfiction piece. Our emphasis in this course is on developing your skills through practice, so you'll spend more time writing than reading. You'll master important concepts by completing enjoyable writing exercises and assignments, and you'll discover a variety of strategies and techniques the pros use to develop characters, create a compelling point of view, build interest through dialogue, and add meaning to your stories.

About the instructor:

I’m an urban girl from a metropolis area of the south (like west-coast-of-Florida-south), who’s systematically moved north to find the land of her dreams in Maine. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre, a Master of Arts in Holistic Wellness, am a certified Usui Reiki Master Practitioner and Elder Greenfire WiseWoman.

I’ve spent over 20 years researching natural and alternative forms of healing. I’ve spent that time also watching trends come and go…often coming back under a new name but with the same dangerous effects. 

Because of all my research, I’ve vowed to stick with tried, true, and more logical, scientific remedies. I’ve also spent over a decade working in health insurance, auto/home insurance, have worked for pediatric gastroenterologist’s as well as chiropractors, and have fought on both sides of medical claims to get Dr’s paid or not paid. I’ve seen all sides of our sick care model, and understand how and why they work.

I’ve been confused. I’ve lost my loved ones to diseases, after spending years caring for them and giving them solid, sound advice. I’ve had my own health battles. I’ve been frustrated by the information/misinformation out there.

I needed alternatives. People soon began asking me to explain how I got those alternatives.

My mission, or calling, is to help you cut through all of the confusion you see and hear about being healthy. I do this because of my own experiences of loss and confusion.

I want you to be able to do what I do—get the diagnosis from western medicine and responsibly follow a Holistic and natural, sensible, empowered existence.

There is a middle road between medicine and nature, and I’m here to help you find it.
