Creative classes and workshops for students who love to read and write
Come perform at an open mic specifically for teens! It's my goal to help support more artistic opportunities for young creatives to showcase their amazing talents and build artistic community.
There will be a sound system, microphones, and an acoustic guitar, ukulele, and keyboard for anyone who doesn't have their own instrument.
Spread the word to all your singer/musician/comic/poet/dancer/performer friends!
Hope to see you there!

ABOUT ME, Claire Brislin
I believe that learning should be a JOYFUL experience. I have a passion for reading and writing and I believe that both help us discover our true selves and become better critical thinkers, empathetic listeners, and compassionate doers.
I have been an educator since 2007, working with high school and middle school students in English, creative writing, and humanities across the globe, most recently at Cascades Academy and REALMS Middle School in Bend, OR . Along the way I received an MA in Literature and an MFA in Writing for Children. I am currently writing books for children but my passion for education has ignited a desire to create a stress-free and grade-free environment for learning where students can be themselves and follow their own instincts in the literary arts.
Come join me and rediscover the JOY of learning.
