You love to write, or perhaps you find it torture. Either way, you wish you were doing more of it.

In this class, we'll get you writing again through tools, exercises, and discussions from famous creativity and writing experts such as Natalie Goldberg, author of "Writing Down The Bones" and Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way." Those include exercises in class that will get you writing no matter what, how to write a messy first draft, and the five writing rules.

This class is for anyone who wants to write or write more. It's part experiential writing, part lecture, and part getting to know yourself (to get the blocks out of the way.)

Bring a pen and paper or a laptop. We will be writing by hand at first, but you can bring your laptop if you prefer it. You'll be glad you took the plunge.

Jennifer will provide excerpts from Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down The Bones, and Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way.

  • A few takeaways include exercises to help you get unstuck, learning about your writing habits, and breaking free of what is blocking you.


"Jennifer Mattson's Get Unstuck, Start Writing Again seminar was by far the best workshop I’ve attended. Jennifer is smart, supportive, empathetic, and experienced as a writer and teacher. Thank you for a great session. By the way, the first exercise resulted in a very good draft for me. Writers need this workshop.” -former student

"The hands-on practice using writing rules to establish a writing practice is something I'll take with me. Jennifer is a great instructor! If you're looking to get unstuck in your writing practice, take this class." -former student

"Jennifer Mattson's class exceeded my expectations. She covered so much material and was very informative. I found the exercises and the information shared very valuable! I also greatly appreciated hearing about Jennifer’s experiences with subjects that were brought up during class. I would definitely recommend this class to other writers. Thank you!" -former student

"I loved the Get Unstuck seminar with Jennifer Mattson. I found the prompts extremely valuable and enjoyed hearing her perspective and examples. It opened up my mind to the variety of ways a person can be a writer and helped me tune in more clearly to what I need to help me be productive. It was surprising how much I gained from just two hours. More than some multi-week courses I’ve taken!" -former student
