Write Where You Are:
The Art of Being Present on The Page
I help people find and share their voice on the page and in their lives. I'd be honored to guide your journey.
I refer to my writing classes as “writing circles,” to emphasize the intimacy and community found there. Each writing circle is small, dynamic, and transformational. I teach a wide range of students, from beginners to professionals, working across genres. My students write novels, memoirs, poetry, short stories, articles, blogs, essays, plays, and more. I am an experienced, skillful facilitator who knows how to create and maintain a safe, sacred space in which magical things unfold!
“Write Where You Are: The Art of Being Present on the Page” may inspire you to write something truer, deeper, and perhaps funnier, than you ever imagined possible. My on-site writing circles takes place in Studio City, California. I also offer Zoom Video writing circles, which follow the same format as my on-site writing circles. Students from all over the world participate in my online writing circles. All you need is a computer with internet connection. Another option is to call in by telephone. Participants write and read in every meeting. It’s very supportive and inspiring!

“Bella’s class is like a Bunsen burner cooking up all kinds of stuff in my imagination!”
—Vik Sheldon, Artist
Bella’s class is a writer’s oasis, for both beginners and seasoned writers alike. She provides an environment that supports, encourages, and challenges the creative process in all of us. A great class for those who want to connect with their inner storyteller and get it down on paper. Highly, highly recommended!”
