Transforming raw experience into art.

Laura Deutsch is a widely published writer, who has been leading writing workshops, retreats and classes for more than 15 years.
Her book, Writing from the Senses, will be released by Shambhala in May. Come celebrate her book launch at Book Passage in Corte Madera on May 17 at 7 p.m.

Laura’s popular workshops and classes at UC Berkeley, San Francisco State, Book Passage and other venues focus on both form and content. Her innovative writing exercises spark students' creativity and help them find the juice in their material. At the same time, as a professional writer and editor, she helps writers develop their craft, strengthening and deepening their writing.
