VAC workshop: Writing from the Heart

The most powerful writing comes from the heart. What do you care about? What inspires you? What is special in your life?

Write about the people, places and memories that matter to you. Write to touch, inspire, move, persuade and provoke readers. Write with emotion; write with spirit. Write from your own truest self to help others find theirs.


This course explores the kind of writing that changes people, oneself included. And it begins honestly, one word, one day at a time.
