Word Studio teachers have included Miriam Peskowitz (author of The Mommy Wars and coauthor of The Daring Book for Girls), Nomi Eve (author of two novels, most recently Henna House), Pam Jenoff (author of six novels, including The Kommandant's Girl), Ilene Raymond Rush (Philadelphia Inquirer reporter and essayist), Rosalind Warren (New York Times essayist), and Marie Lamba (agent and author with Jennifer de Chiara Literary Agency).

Janet presented at three venues in spring 2015: a workshop and reading at the annual conference of the Pearl Buck International Writing Center (where she also gave a reading), two workshops at a regional public library, and a full-day retreat at a manor house in Blue Bell, PA, copresented with Lynn Rosen of Open Book. The workshops focused on finding your most meaningful stories and developing narrative and character voices.

To enroll or ask questions, please email (see CONTACT tab to right).

PAYMENT POLICY: Payment is accepted by check or via PayPal (see link). As is true for every educational institution, at The Word Studio, each person's enrollment affects whether or not a class or workshop will run. A commitment to take a workshop indicates a commitment to paying the class fee in full. So that we can honor our commitments to our teachers, fees are nonrefundable except in the case of a medical emergency on the part of the enrollee or close family member.

A deposit of half is requested at registration, and the remainder is due on email notification prior to the start of class. (If you're registering close to the class's starting date, a single payment will be requested.)
