This weekly writing workshop is designed to help you learn to write frequently and fearlessly. Develop your personal writing practice in the company of friends, all while eating delicious homemade baked goods. What could be better? 

At the end of the eight weeks, you'll come away from this workshop with: 

  • Pages and pages of fresh, new writing that's all your own.

  • A deeper sense of your authentic writing voice.

  • Stronger skills in the craft of writing, forged through positive feedback in a safe environment-- no red pen here!

  • A smile on your face and a skip in your step.

What people are saying:

“I just wanted to let you know that I had an exhilarating time in your workshop. Thank you for taking the time to coax out our creativity – I surprised myself. It was also fantastic to be surrounded by such strong writers – I feel very lucky to have landed in such a wonderful group.”

— Deane, Birds of a Feather Winter 2016

“Birds of a Feather was my first writing workshop, and I can’t think of a better place to start. Jaclyn runs a careful, thoughtful class. She skillfully creates a writing environment that is kind, generous and supportive. As a facilitator, Jaclyn is able to guide us through writing assignments that vary from deep to playful, and she does a brilliant job of helping the group to maintain boundaries and to give helpful feedback to each other.”

— Nadya, Birds of a Feather Winter 2016

“Birds of a Feather allowed me to rediscover my creative writing voice after more than a decade of wanting to come back to it. Jaclyn created a safe setting in which to explore, share, and receive positive, constructive feedback. After this eight session workshop, I’m feeling inspired!”

— Anna, Birds of a Feather Winter 2017
