Creative Writing Workshop in Jerusalem

If you are writing memoir, personal essays, short stories or a novel, my workshop may be for you.  In a small group that meets weekly for 15 sessions in the center of Jerusalem, you will learn what makes a story compelling, a voice strong and characters - real or fictional- fascinating.

I regard June as remarkably insightful and adept at critiquing creative fiction and non-fiction, resulting in giant steps forward in the quality of the writings submitted to her. And by the way, she's a lovely, caring person, very easy and fun to work with.

Working with June is working with a professional. The time and effort she puts into reading and re-reading work, typing up reports, and focusing on structure and language that can be strengthened, gives the writer tools to edit and rethink their work. I am truly indebted to her for her insights and constructive suggestions.

 

Private Sessions

I give personalized workshops geared towards helping you shape and empower your memoir, personal essays, short stories or novels. Would you like your family not to yawn when you read excerpts to them?

Writing as a Search for Higher Meaning, A Master Class on Franz Kafka

Franz Kafka, after staying up all night to compose a short story, wrote in his diary, “The fearful strain and joy. In this way only can writing be done; only with such coherence; only with such a complete opening out of body and soul.”

 

In March 2014 I gave a one-day seminar at Judy Labensohn's The Writing Pad in Jerusalem on Franz Kafka's methods for opening up the soul in order to write truer and deeper prose. Using exercises that he used, we tapped into our own wells of creativity.

 

If you are interested in organizing a group of people for this seminar, please contact:

I was delighted to participate in a workshop by June Leavitt about the writings of Kafka. Except for a few readings years ago, I knew very little about Kafka. June opened me up to his remarkable life and times, and writings. She is clearly a world authority on this subject, and the workshop was fascinating.
