Writing classes run the gamut from memoir writing to journaling, poetry and fiction writing, blogging, non-fiction and more.  We offer small group guitar lessons and have opportunities for musicians to teach private lessons in our center. Our classes are taught by experienced and talented artists, writers and musicians who have proven success in the classroom, as well as in their chosen artistic medium. Some classes are offered in a series of once a week for several weeks, some half day, full day, weekend or weeklong seminars.

Most of our faculty live and work in the Bluegrass regional, but we occasionally are able to bring in well-known national and international artists and writers.  Our offerings change frequently.
