The January class was a big success, so we’re doing it again!

Join Shedoesthecity’s Jen McNeely and Erin Rodgers at The Gladstone Hotel for a creative workshop that will make 2017 the year you penned your adventures and documented your life through a regular writing practice.

Topics covered will include how to start writing regularly, the benefits of writing, where ideas come from, how to find your voice, and the best way to pitch your stories.

Admission is $20 and tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite:
