If you're an adult and you want to learn creative writing from a practical point of view, if you always wanted to write short stories, poems, plays or screenplays but just couldn't get started. If you feel the need, the passion to write is as essential to your life as breathing, I can help. Aside from winning awards for writing I have published poetry, and short stories. My plays have been produced on regional stages and in New York. I studied screenwriting at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. I have also published a novel. Let's get started on that, poetry, play, short story, screenplay, novel you've always wanted to write. My methods are unconventional but they have worked for me, let them work for you.
