In this workshop, you'll combine two fun and time-tested techniques to unlock your ideas and let your writing flow: timed free-writing and prompts. When free-writing, you have permission to write without concerns about spelling, grammar or whether your writing is "good enough." Prompts such as objects, images, words and phrases give your imagination a clear starting point.

During the workshop, you'll have the option to share some of your writing, but there is no pressure to do so.
You'll leave the workshop with an understanding of how free-writing and prompts can help you get started or unblocked. Chances are you'll finish the workshop with a few gems that you'd like to rework and turn into pieces of fiction, personal essays, or poems.

Ready to get your creative juices flowing?
Whether you're a beginning writer looking for support or an experienced writer hoping to spice up your writing practice, this workshop is for you!

Feedback from past participants:

I had a great time at the workshop, and a great time writing fiction for the very first time! I especially liked the relaxed atmosphere and the inclusion of everybody, while also allowing us to step back and only listen.

I had some fears going into this workshop: of things being awkward, of not being able to write anything in the live session, of not feeling comfortable in the group to express myself and share my thoughts. I am happy to say none of those fears were founded and the workshop was the exact opposite of all that.

As someone who has attended all six of Lisa’s “Unlock Your Writing” workshops, I can say that Lisa provides a supportive, nonjudgmental atmosphere for burgeoning writers as well as those who are interested in trying their hand at writing. She has introduced me to a wide variety of tools, such as using different prompts, free writing, timed writing, and regular writing practice, with the understanding that we each have to figure out what suits us best. Writing can feel lonely at times, but in Lisa's workshops I have found a lively community.
