Program Details

For everyone.

Tell your story, honoring your voice and writing in your own rhythm. A distinguished writer herself, Nancy Slonim Aronie says, “I don’t think anyone can teach writing. What I can do is make it safe. When you feel safe, you can do anything.”

Make the leap from yearning to writing. This program focuses on personal narrative, but if you want to write the beginning of your screenplay, the poetry collection that has been marinating in you for years, song lyrics, a monologue, or stories for your grandkids, this is the place to begin.

Within the warm and empowering environment that Nancy creates, it’s easier to silence the inner critic and explore a realm of authenticity. Reassuring for the beginning writer and refreshing for the burned-out professional, this workshop offers inspiration and the chance to take yourself and your writing seriously.
