To tone and strengthen your writing, you need the occasional workout for your writing muscles. Enter our Writing Gym for a fun and energetic exercise-themed series of writing prompts designed to get your creative juices flowing.

Your coach is David Jacobson, a Writing Salon instructor who also has vast experience in coaching sports and fitness. “When we consciously connect the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of a writing practice, the fun and feelings flow,” David says.

In the Gym, you will stretch, feel the heartbeat of your writing, and maybe even break a sweat. When the session ends, you may feel exhausted but invigorated, with your writing muscles newly toned and flexible.

*Through 2:00pm on August 04, The Writing Gym is available for a discounted three-session purchase. The three-session purchase will give you access to all three summer Writing Gyms: August 05, August 19, and September 02. After you click on "Sign Up," set to "0" the ticket type that you do NOT want to purchase before adding to cart.


About The Writing Salon's Remote Classes

Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, The Writing Salon is running all classes in a remote learning format. You will be able to participate in live class meetings via Zoom videoconference. To attend classes, you'll need a phone, tablet or computer and access to the internet. You can participate in the class from wherever you'd like, whether on your living room couch or in your office. Before your class meets, you'll receive an email from The Writing Salon with more information about Zoom and your remote class. If you have any questions about remote learning, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at hello@writingsalons.com.



    David Jacobson started writing for newspapers at age 15 in 1979. While earning his journalism degree from the University of Minnesota, he served as sports editor and general columnist at Minnesota Daily. Throughout the ‘90s, David wrote and edited trade journals, and at the turn of the millennium he turned his focus to marketing communications content, including blogs, op-ed articles, press releases, and first-person point-of-view pieces. From 2005-2017, David produced thousands of such items as the marketing and communications lead for the non-profit Positive Coaching Alliance and now does so as sole proprietor of Inkflow Communications.
