Hi! I'm Melissa Clark. I'm an author, writer and professor with a passion for helping people find their voice. With over 20 years of teaching experience, at universities, colleges, conferences and festivals, I've decided to host my creative writing workshops online so you can participate from anywhere. Take these courses on your next flight, from your hotel room, or from the comforts of home. I created this space as a way to connect with people from across the globe. 

I'll be posting 15-20 minute fun workshops including Beginnings, Endings, The Graphic Novel, Creativity, Flash Fiction, and much, much more. Whether you're in the middle of a writing project, or just about to jump into one, these episodes will offer inspiration, creativity and technique. So check back often. If you see something you like, grab it, because there will be a rotating set of workshops for you to choose from. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I wish you many happy tales!

Customer Testimonials

As a non-writer, I was initially intimidated by the writing exercises, but they were so much fun and yielded such surprising results that my fear melted away. Thanks so much for these fantastic classes.

BEGINNINGS helped me finally begin my memoir!

I took the Flash Fiction class, learned a lot and even wrote my own flash. Great episode and tons of fun.
