"When we smile and are happy, others around us are happy. When everyone is happy, the world is a happier place. Let's join together to create a better world by allowing the joy of our inner creativity to flow." Laura Goldman Weinberg
"Write with Laura" Writing is more than just getting the structure right. It's about finding your voice and, in the process, discovering greater clarity, self-awareness, and self-confidence. In Laura's creative writing workshops, she uses art, songs, music, movement, laughter yoga, and other tools to release the flow of creativity. Everyone is special and unique and worth being heard.
"The Blissful Artist" Laura is an independent artist who allows the creative energy of life to dance through her onto the canvas. She has studied and explored drawing, watercolor, oil, acrylic, tissue paper collage, and mixed media. She now favors acrylic paint on primed canvas, winning awards, and continuing to exhibit in shows, museums, and galleries. She sees a blank canvas as a field of all possibilities and is filled with excitement and enthusiasm to witness the journey of the creative impulse. Colorful, bright, happy, creative, energetic, fun, expressive are some of the words that describe her abstract-expressionist style.

When we flow with the source of creativity, we move beyond any self-doubt, limitations, and obstacles we may place in our life, and we find ourselves happier and more content. Creative writing and creative art can open us to greater levels of enthusiasm, joy, and productivity on all levels. And besides, it's just pure fun!
CREATIVE WRITING SUMMER CAMP TESTIMONIALS:
"My ten-year-old son, although good at writing, never enjoyed the process. Laura's style of creating space for expression and the way she acknowledges the kids, really sparked something in him, and I hope he continues to write more. When I sat through class, little did I know how important it was to invite that innocence and playfulness into my adult life. I loved the sessions myself - I was fascinated at my own expression. After the session on poetry, I caught myself rhyming so many times. It made me smile :)." A. A.
"Laura, I would like to sincerely thank you for making the classes such a great experience for the kids. My daughter loved all the sessions completely. She looked forward to the classes every week and always had great things to say about you! She told me that of all the online classes that she has, this is her best and she loved it the most. She enjoyed every bit of your classes, including all the processes that she did and has told me many times that she doesn't want it to end :). I see a good change in her in terms of creativity. She has sometimes brought up creative ideas in the way the texts are written in the book that she reads every day. I would be very happy to enroll her in any of your classes in the future :)! Thank you once again for the amazing sessions." S. S.
ADULT CREATIVE WRITING TESTIMONIAL: "What the workshop did for me was to create space for the inner child, who was unheard and buried somewhere deep within, to get my attention. As we grow older, as our responsibilities grow, as we put focus on our material and spiritual needs, I have lost touch with my emotional needs. It is very important for adults, both men and women, to heal the inner child. God knows how many grown people walk around with hurt and passing that to others. It is a great way to go back to the innocent space and invite playfulness into life. It's not about finding perfect words, it is about finding my voice, the voice of my lost forgotten inner child." A. A.
