We are a multi generational women’s writers group that meets in Brentwood, California and Great Barrington, Ma.

Each class is a thematically linked combination of quick writing exercises, longer prompt writing and work that has been generated both in and out of class.

NOTE: LA classes are being held on an abbreviated schedule, as I am renovating a farm house in western Mass this year to be used as an artist and writers retreat! I am holding a Skype class (zoom.com) with the same schedule. Send me a note if you'd like to join! Classes in Great Barrington, Mass starting soon!

 The Long Table

Women's Writers Group:

Sisterhood, laughter, emotion, technique, inspiration and above all,



  • In class prompt writing generates new work each week. Prompts may be used for personal stories, fiction or character development.

  • Screenwriters bring in scenes that can be cast from the class to hear read.

  • Novelists, essayists and memoirists bring new pages.

  • Songs, poems, blogs, short stories, one woman shows, musings and rants-- anything goes.

  • If you are not currently working on material outside of class, assignments will be offered.

  • Although it is encouraged, you are not required to bring work in every week.

  • Rewriting is a part of the process.

  • There will be a class story salon quarterly for those who are interested. This will be a public performance.


The most important thing is that

THE LONG TABLE inspires you to write!
