***NB No class on Monday February 20***
Unleash those thoughts deep inside which you often lose in the haze of daily minutiae, or the anxiety and fatigue of dealing with these current times. Pull out the memories that make for a scintillating memoir, or make the historical facts of your family history interesting for the grandchildren. Enjoy the support of other writers on varied and intersecting paths of their writing experience to plant your words on the screen or page. You are not alone in the urge to write. Shawn Coyne, author of The Story Grid says, “Whether you know it or not, your desire to write comes from the urge to not just be ‘creative’, it’s a need (one every human being on earth has) to help others. A well-told story is a gift to the reader/listener/viewer.”
Instructor: Rusti L. Lehay
Rusti L. Lehay, a global editor and book and writing coach, has created over 40 articles guiding writers to authordom. As a result of Rusti’s online writing weekend STAY-Treats and unique book coaching techniques, writers generate a large body of work, many becoming published authors. Her collaborative/immersive editing methods ensure writers retain artistic control. Using an empathic, heart-centred approach, authors and novice writers increase their confidence to independently craft and tweak their writing projects. Witnessing writers find and speak in their own voice to serve the real boss, the audience, not the editor, is one of Rusti’s greatest joys. She offers online writing STAY-Treats and monthly lounges and teaches weekly creative writing classes. Her primary mission is to inspire, provide value and make writing fun and easy.
