Writing & Creativity at Sea: Turning Inspiration into Ideas; and Ideas into Passion Projects

  • 62+ hours of carefully-crafted creativity and writing sessions
  • A wide range of course lengths; from a full Around-the-World Cruise to a single Sea Day
  • Each course is designed to be interactive, supportive, and motivational
  • One-on-one support for those who need it
  • Downloadable course materials and online resources
  • Dynamic PowerPoint presentations for each module

Creative ideas seem to percolate particularly effectively far from home. My goal for these courses is to harness the inspiration we experience while traveling into a creative project that ignites passion and promise. As each participant goes at his or her own pace, I provide the structure, support, and motivation to translate inspiration into an idea, and then create a roadmap for the execution of a completed passion project. 

I hold “office hours” each sea day, inviting participants to discuss their ideas and projects on a one-to-one basis.  Multi-module courses are designed to culminate in a final “salon” where ideas and Works in Progress can be shared with the larger community of cruise guests.

I frequently combine teaching these workshops with lecturing on the broad range of enrichment topics listed on my online portfolio.
