See what people are saying​

From her writing expertise and global literary knowledge, Alexandra knows how to prompt the writer forward from seed of an idea to completion. I have learned to write longer narratives that have become starting points for memoir, flash fiction and now a novel. Working with her gave me the confidence to read my work in public and send it out.

Alexandra’s workshop equipped me with the skill of going deep in my writing. It’s something I turn to again and again—going deep, getting to the emotional core of a character—and it’s paying off so much.Alexandra’s workshop equipped me with the skill of going deep in my writing.

Through SF Creative Writing Institute, Alexandra has successfully woven a community for writers to connect, grow, and nourish one another as artists, both seasoned and new to their craft. As a forever writer forever growing as a poet and educator, I owe my own creative transformation to her program.

We’ll create new work from several writing prompts that help you get at the core of what you want to say and talk about the dynamics of storytelling in the pieces you just wrote and how to write ideas on the page.

MODULE THREE

Creating - Crafting a Narrative​

We’ll go over some universal principles of good storytelling together as they apply to the structure of a narrative in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, or dramatic writing. You’ll ideate and begin to draft a new piece or a new part of an old piece you want to finish in class with these principles as a guide, leaving the session with promising new work

We’ll go over the work that we liked and provide a sounding board for the artist to pitch new ideas and try out new pieces of writing on our ears.

MODULE SIX​

Envisioning - Goal setting & (Gently) holding yourself accountable​

We’ll use techniques like scripting, goal setting, forecasting, recasting to plot your writing goals on a timeline for the rest of the week, month and year.
