    A Writers’ Community in Fairfield County. Write Yourself Free, 252 Post Road East, Westport.
    Write Yourself FreeSM Method of instruction (fiction, non-fiction, memoir, screenwriting) demystifies language arts, freeing each writers’ intuition, and stimulating creative process. Nobody needs to aspire to write – we are all writers on the inside. Using simple exercises, your characters will speak from behind the clutter of the conscious mind and start to live in your imagination. Writing becomes pleasure not pressure.

    And we’re more: Write Yourself FreeSM founders Tish Fried and Patrick McCord also envision a group of like-minded individuals sharing a place to work, drink coffee, and exchange ideas: a salon, of sorts, but gee, that sounds pretentious, maybe “a collective” is more like it. Hey we’re calling it The Writers’ Room. The Writers’ Room is the first floor of our storefront at 252 Post Road East in the center of Westport in what looks like a little old red schoolhouse.

    “I get the best first drafts of my life when I write in Drew’s living room. I’ve been taking workshops with Drew for ten years. She’s a master teacher as well as a stellar human being.” Sarah B.

    Five classes to choose from:

    10 – noon

    Drew’s vivacious spirit and proven expertise help new and seasoned writers discover and deepen their voice. Drafts that are written under her care are strong and usually surprise the writer. Her insightful critiques involving “what works and only what works” move individuals confidently forward in writing. Drew creates a safe and vibrant environment where students consistently return again and again.
