Join instructors Elaine Beale and Alison Luterman for a Writing Salon Write-a-thon to raise funds for the Anti Police-Terror Project.

Elaine and Alison will provide a variety of writing prompts and exercises to spark your creativity and imagination. You’ll get a chance to abandon your inner critic, get your words on the page, and enjoy uninterrupted writing time.

Says Elaine, “At The Writing Salon we’re dedicated to bringing people together to be creative and build community—two important ways to get through these deeply challenging times. In this class, we’ll write, share with the group, and provide supportive feedback.”

This is also an opportunity to support the fight for racial justice since all payments made for this class will be donated to the Anti Police-Terror Project, an Oakland-based organization dedicated to creating strategies to end police terror in communities of color. Please join us.



    Elaine Beale has published two novels, the most recent of which, Another Life Altogether, was featured in Oprah Magazine and received praise from the Boston GlobeLambda Literary, and Publishers Weekly, among others. Elaine was the winner of the 2007 Poets & Writers California Writers Exchange Award and has an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia. Her latest book is Write for Wellness, a guide to using expressive writing to promote emotional and physical health.

    Alison Luterman is the author of four books of poetry, including In the Time of Great Fires and Desire Zoo, and an e-book of personal essays, Feral City. Her work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, The Sun, Rattle, The Atlanta Review, Catamaran, and many other journals and anthologies. She also writes song lyrics, plays, and is interested in hybrid forms. She has been teaching at the Writing Salon for over twenty years, and has also taught through Poets in the Schools, at New College, at Esalen and Omega Institutes and at workshops and conferences around the country.
