When we write about love, we are writing about our entire world—not just romantic love (although that’s welcome!), but the love for a child, the love between long-time friends, the love of a sport, the love for a house, a country, our animal friends, and our fellow humans. Whether you’re a new writer or a seasoned professional—whether you write memoir, fiction, short stories or essays—this workshop will inspire and encourage you to infuse your writing with the complexities of love. Through a series of right brain writing exercises, Jamie will familiarize you with the essential elements of good writing, including how to discover your own unique themes, viewpoints, voice, and structure, and how to develop a love story.

By the end of this four-session workshop, you will have either four separate short pieces or one story inspired by the in-class and take-home assignments.

Callan is the creator of “The Writers Toolbox: Creative Games and Exercises for the “Write Side of the Brain” (Chronicle Books). She is also the author of over nine books, including novels and nonfiction. Her work has been translated worldwide into more than 25 languages. She earned a B.A. in literature with a concentration in poetry from Bard College and an M.F.A. in screenwriting from the U.C.L.A. School of Film, Television, and Theater. She has taught writing at Fairfield University, U.C.L.A., Yale University, N.Y.U., Wesleyan University, and many other places. Callan lives with her husband on La Belle Farm in Valatie, New York. She writes a weekly creativity newsletter on Substack.
