Testimonials for Clare's Writing Workshops

“I really didn’t know what to expect, but within 5 minutes of the first class, I knew I made a good decision. The group of people was so eclectic and interesting. Our “teacher” is kind, thoughtful and created such a safe, warm environment that we all seemed to feel comfortable to not only write galore during class, but share a particular piece towards the end of the two hours.”

“I joined my first writing workshop with Clare Bolton on a whim. After the first night, I was hooked. Clare’s energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge lured me in and I found a voice that I had lost many year’s before. Clare guides the group and made us all believe we were indeed all writers. I returned for a second series and a third. Clare gave me the confidence to explore my writing in different directions. I have a novel underway, a thick stack of notebooks filled with stories and poems I never knew I could produce.

“I would recommend anyone who has thought about writing or returning to writing, to give themselves a real gift and enroll with one of Clare’s series.”

“Most of us who have spent our lives immersed in reading book after book, have thought about writing our own stories. The problem always was: ow do I get started? Clare Bolton provided this starting point for me through her Creative Writing workshop. The environment she created proved to be stimulating, yet safe, with positive feedback for each writer’s work. Since that first 8 week course, I have continued to write regularly, including joining in with a local writing group twice a month. Thank you Clare! ”
