To Everyone Who Has Ever Written a Story, or Is Trying to Write a Story, or Is Wondering What It’s Like to Write a Story:
Let’s work together!
Start writing with Creative Bootcamp.
I don’t know about you, but every time I find myself staring at a blank page, all that whiteness looks so vast and impenetrable. That’s why I came up with Creative Bootcamp. Whether you’re a seasoned writer, new to writing, or somewhere in between, Creative Bootcamp will feed your brain new foods, pull your imagination in new directions, and give you the chance to explore the creative interplay between internal and external, where story ideas are formed. Creative Bootcamp is an online course filled with writing exercises, craft-centered observations and conversations that are equally good for helping you start something new or getting you out of a creative rut.

Keep writing with Fiction Workshops, in person or online.
Writing is a lonely business, but it doesn’t have to be…at least, not all the time. Having people to bounce ideas off of and get writing feedback is an essential aspect of writing life. That’s where my fiction workshops come in. I offer workshops online and in the NYC area throughout the year, modeled on the classes I’ve been teaching for over 10 years at the MFA programs of Brooklyn College, NYU, and Sarah Lawrence. Designed for writers looking to receive constructive and specific feedback within a supportive and engaged community of their peers, participants range in age from twenty-somethings to sixty-somethings, and represent various experience writing levels and interests, from flash fiction to the novel.
Read what some of my workshop students have to say:
“Hi Myla: I just wanted to share some good news with you. This morning, Michigan Quarterly Review accepted the story I was talking about last night (the one I couldn’t get published)… I have you to thank. I took all of your notes with me to the Vermont Studio Center last summer and worked on the story around the clock. So, thank you!”
“You’re such a great editor/mentor, really the best I’ve ever had in over 30 years of publishing books. I’m so grateful I found you.”
