I occasionally teach writing workshops online. Most of my classes are offered through Writespace, based in Houston; The Muse Writers Center, based in Hampton Roads, VA; and the Susan M. Glasscock School of Continuing Studies, based in Houston.

Writing creatively is a dream for many, but it can be difficult to find the time, confidence, and inspiration to get started. This encouraging workshop will serve as an introduction to the three major genres of creative writing (fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction) and will guide you through generative writing exercises designed to promote creativity. You’ll also have the opportunity to share your work in gentle, encouraging feedback sessions. By the end of the workshop, you’ll walk away with drafts of stories, poems, and essays and the self-assurance to begin—or continue–your writing practice. Interested? Register here!
Speculative fiction—an umbrella term encompassing science fiction, fantasy and other works with fantastical elements—is one of humanity’s oldest and most expansive forms of storytelling. From Homer to Heinlein, Shakespeare to Shelley, people love stories that push the boundaries of our imagination. Join established speculative fiction novelist Cassandra Rose Clarke in an exploration of the elements crucial to the genre, such as world-building, nonhuman characters and common speculative tropes. After reading important works of classic and contemporary speculative fiction, we will craft and share our own works of science fiction and fantasy. Writers of all levels are welcome in this workshop, as are readers who want to try their hand at writing stories of their own.Interested? Register here!
Hire Me to Teach Your Writing Workshop!
I have over a decade's worth of experience teaching classes and workshops related to literature and writing (both creative and academic) and have worked with students of all ages. In addition to my work with Writespace and the Muse, I have taught writing and composition at Houston Community College and Lonestar College and led library workshops for junior high students and high school students.
As an educator, I believe students should be the focus of a classroom, not the teacher. I strive to ensure my students, regardless of their age and experience, are as involved as possible in the learning process.
