We’re bringing this much-loved program back next month for all Centered members to enjoy.

Every Sunday we drop a new audio lesson that guides you through one hour of deep writing prompts and exercises. These sessions are simple, beautiful, unexpected: all writers are welcome, regardless of genre or experience.

Try these sessions, and remember how much you love writing, and install a habit that makes your writing practice more consistent.

The Revision Course

Created and led by Sonal Champsee, this program teaches you how to strengthen your understanding of craft, become a braver writer, and write a new version of your story. Revise your short story.

Creative Nonfiction

With Nicole Baute
April 22 — June 12, 2024

Have you ever read a beautiful passage in a novel or memoir and felt immediately in your gut that it was true? Not true as in factual, but true as in raw and real. True as in you feel an instant connection with the writer. You trust them. You believe them. You want to spend more time in their world.

It doesn’t take superhuman skill or extraordinary life experiences to write in this way. It takes permission.

Learn how to write about the truth of your life experience with a sense of purpose. Finish with a personal essay you’re proud of and much more.
