Cast Off!

Ahhh…fall! The perfect time to take up pumpkin spice whatever, beard/leg-hair growing, bourbon-sipping, and of course, writing! So join the upcoming workshops in Brooklyn, NY, to give yourself a creative boost and keep your writing practice on track through the ever-chilling (slowly chilling) months!

 

“A writer is someone who writes.”  ~ William Stafford

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.’s mother, by many sources, though often attributed to Mark Twain. I’m putting my money on the unnamed mother.

When I write in workshop sessions with Leslie, I’m riveted to my seat. She has things to say in her writing that are all her. Sign-up for a workshop and give her approach a try. She is passionate and committed to the idea that everyone is an artist with something unique to express. The AWA method she uses to facilitate writing sessions is supportive, stimulating, and free of judgement. I emerge from doing a “write” having heard myself more clearly and connecting with others in the group in ways I had not imagined. I can recommend Leslie’s workshops without reservation.”

“Leslie’s Cast Off! workshops offer novice and experienced writers a safe and supportive space to generate new work. Her creative spirit makes her workshops fun and engaging. Also, I loved the way the AWA method allowed me to feel at ease and take risks with my writing. Leslie did a great job encouraging everyone to participate and provide positive craft-focused feedback.”
