Join us for 8 classes of Creative Writing for Non-Writers starting on May 1st designed to help develop writing fundamentals, creative capacity, and confidence. Our ideal student is someone who needs a little extra push to put their self out there and write. It is an especially great course for those who are struggling with communication at work, learning English, or want a break from their usual routine.
The instructor, Lisa Pfau, is the founder and CEO of PFAU: Academic writing, editing, and coaching. She has over 10 years experience helping students to improve their writing skills in academic and professional settings, as well as editing/writing many academic, government, and professional documents and reports. Her real passion is injecting creativity into generally boring texts to make the reader laugh or engage. She also published a few creative works of her own, including a short story entitled “Cold War” in Horizon Magazine based on her experiences in China. She looks forward of getting out of her managerial role back into the creative side that drew to build her business in the first place – writing.
