The Artist’s Way is a 12-week course designed to free your creativity in whatever forms it appears, connect you to your unique gifts and passions, and teach you how to live a fulfilling, joyful life, following your heart’s dreams.

She will guide you through an experiential process to connect with your own creativity. You will learn about the 12-week course and how it has changed the lives of thousands of people, opening them up to greater creativity, fulfillment, passion and joy, freeing them from long-held blocks and limitations, and giving them the practical tools to make their heart’s dreams come true.

Creative Writing Workshop Gets the Ink Flowing

Poet and writer Maxima Kahn is offering a new series of her popular workshop for writers: Freedom to Write. The 12-week series will begin on Jan. 23 and meet on Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m. at a private home in Nevada City.

Open to writers in all genres and at all levels of experience, the method helps writers and would-be-writers to write freely, discover and hone their authentic voice and generate new writing. The process focuses on cultivating each writer’s unique voice and strengths, while teaching tools and skills of the writer’s art and craft. Students write together in a stimulating environment and have the option to share their writing and receive supportive feedback. They also receive one private session with Kahn.

Kahn says of the class, “I teach writers how to access inspiration, cultivate their creativity and let their writing flow. I also teach them how to hone their writing to make it more powerful and how to make time for writing in their lives and reach their writing goals, whatever those may be.”

To find out more and to register, visit or call Maxima at 530-263-9780.

A teacher and creative life coach, Maxima Kahn has been teaching and working one-on-one with writers and artists since 2004. She has taught at the University of California Davis extension, has been a participant at the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley, the Colrain Conference and the Vermont Studio Center, and her writing has been featured in numerous literary journals and twice been nominated for Best of the Net. Her full-length book of poems, Fierce Aria, is forthcoming from Finishing Line Press.
