What if you were living a different life? In a different city? In a different skin? What if you were taller or shorter? What would you feel? Think? Say?… What would you write?
Join us for a fun exploration of imagination. If you’ve ever dreamed of writing…here’s your chance!
Purpose of Workshop:
Come find every creative bone in your body as we examine, explore, articulate and get your thoughts on the page. In a judgment-free zone, we will imagine, explore and create. Then we will collaborate to produce a collective writing project. You will leave the workshop with something tangible to show for your efforts. All levels of writers are welcome! Come on, you got this!
Intention of Workshop:
Using fun exercises and word prompts, writers will learn to embrace their creativity – in their own words and lives!
- Find their unique voice
- Have the ability to identify facts vs fiction (and how they can become one)
- Learn technical tips for better writing
- Gain creative writing experience (even if it’s your first time!)
- Learn how to self-edit
- Experiment with character development
- Experience artistic collaboration
- Get answers to your writing questions (there are no dumb questions!)
- Leave with something that you, as a group, have written!
Materials Needed: Pen, notebook and an open mind
Our workshops are all beginner level and we welcome anyone wanting to have a creative experience!
Kim Green has spent the first half of her career as a prolific writer in the entertainment industry. She has written everything from award-winning copy to a New York Times Bestselling memoir of R&B star, Fantasia Barrino. As a music journalist, Green’s writing has appeared in Essence, The Source, Mode Magazine, Paper, The Philadelphia Tribune and UK publications, i-D and The Wire. Countless celebrity interviews have included legends; Al Jarreau, Rickie Lee Jones, Patti Labelle, Queen Latifah, Tupac Shakur, David Byrne and Harry Connick Jr.
After years of working closely with creative people and knowing the challenges of shining bright in an unkind world, Kim was inspired to get life coaching credentials and to work with people who want to overcome what stops them in life and in their writing. She says, “Blank Page Consulting” was designed to propel women to overcome their obstacles by tapping into their deepest truths.” Using the wisdom gained from her personal and professional experiences, she created a unique word-centered coaching practice.
Kim says, “Coaching is much needed in a world where people are broken. What is distinct about the coaching discipline is that it is about propelling clients forward, as opposed to dwelling on their pasts. I seize the opportunity to support clients to find their own wisdom and brilliance. I am here to make whatever they dream of, happen.”
Kim’s ability to listen, empathize and infuse rigor into her client’s lives is what has become her trademark.
