​I LOVE teaching workshops!                        They can be customized to meet the needs of your

  group or organization                            I work with with writers at all levels, even those who

  have never written before.

It's exciting when people discover the creativity they

    already have.   

With my workshops size doesn't matter.

I've done workshops with 8 women in a living

  room, and 175 people assembled in a concert hall!

I do executive sessions, half day, day-long and weekend

  intensives.

We can Zoom, Microsoft Teams and post-Covid gather.

Call 213.321.7930  Or email DRGheartland@gmail.com.

Please put 'Workshop' in the subject line so I can give you immediate attention.                                         Looking forward to safe gatheringsand hugs again

Sharing the same sky,

Dorothy aka Notorious DRG
