Writing for Self Discovery

Writing can be an extremely powerful tool for personal exploration and transformation. In this class we will explore through writing the themes that matter most to us: family, love, health, work, purpose, dreams, goals and whatever else we stumble upon. This is a great class to take as we get ready to move into a new year. Open to writers at any stage. 

About the Instructor:

Maureen McDole was born in St. Petersburg, Florida. She is a direct descendant of carnies, carpenters and fishermen. This do-it-yourself ethos in her DNA infuses every area of her life. As far back as she can remember she loved to write. 

She is the author of three books of poems, Exploring My Options (2006), Longing for the Deep End (2011), and Feast (2021). She has an English B.A., with Literary Studies Concentration from University of South Florida and a Certificate in Arts & Culture Strategy from University of Pennsylvania.  

Her poetry has been set in a variety of different ways including: film, dance, spoken word, art installations, Sprechstimme, and traditional vocal works. 

She hosts a weekly podcast called The Write Life and she has a monthly column in The Artisan Magazine with the same name, where she is also the literature editor. She is also the host of Keep St. Pete Lit’s weekly podcast Typewriter Talks.

Maureen has been leading workshops and speaking about creativity and leadership for over 20 years. She founded the literary arts organization, Keep St. Pete Lit, because she believes wholeheartedly in the power of literature to change the world.
