Write Prompts with Me at Politics & Prose Bookstore!

I’ll be teaching a prompt writing class at Politics & Prose Bookstore in June, and I’d love to see you at one of my sessions. Beginners and experts are welcome.

Here are the details:

Right Brain Writing – Time and Eternity

Thursday, June 15, 6:30 to 9 p.m.
Location: P&P's Secondary Classroom (5039 Connecticut Avenue, Unit #4)


Tuesday, June 20, 1 to 3:30 p.m.
Location: P&P's Secondary Classroom (5039 Connecticut Avenue, Unit #4)

Explore your creative side in this session, one of a series of stand-alone classes with prompts designed to get your subconscious flowing. Through guided exercises, we’ll focus on writing about the passage of time as witnessed through our daily lives while also exploring how time relates to us in a larger, more spiritual sense. No writing experience necessary!

This is a great class for beginners and also for those fiction writers and/or memoirists with more experience who might be stuck in their current projects and are looking for a jolt of inspiration. Our goal is to have fun in a supportive, nurturing environment and to go home with several promising pieces to work on further.  Please bring lots of paper and pen/pencil or a fully charged computer. Note: new exercises!

The Vintage Book of Contemporary American Poetry, ed. by J.D. McClatchy
*Please note that this book will be used for all Right Brain Writing classes and that although it is a poetry book, you are not required to write poetry.


DC-area author Leslie Pietrzyk explores the creative process and all things literary.
