I have some really cool series coming up for the late summer / early fall:

– Improv Level 1 Class – Tuesdays starting August 6
– Improv Level 2 Class – Mondays starting August 5
– Improv Level 3 Class – Thursdays starting August 22

Each of these courses are six-week series, and are focused on improv and authentic connection and expression. Now enrolling! 🙂

End of September:
– Creative Writing Workshop (8 weeks)

A small class (6 participants) will workshop a piece of writing* that you have completed before your week to be workshopped. We will workshop one piece per class, and in the first two classes, you will learn and review the basic elements of story-telling and creative writing (so you can best workshop others’ writing as well as complete your own story).

This will be an in-depth workshop including creative writing exercises and high-quality notes and suggestions (from myself, as well as the other students in the class.)

*Fiction focused; some Creative Nonfiction allowed – but no academic essays, poetry, journalism, etc. This class is focused on story-telling.

I will create an event soon, and sign up will begin in August.

**Let me know if you are interested in these offerings ASAP!**


A lot has been shifting in my life in the past several months, and overall, I feel like I am moving from a more Doing space to a more Being space. As you might have noticed, this has meant a lot less “hustle.” No social media videos, a rare post here and there, and a lot less trying.

I’ve let go of the story of Natalie the Successful Author, and am now focusing more on what feels good and right in the moment. Mostly, that looks like spending time with people I love, more time outdoors, yoga, playing, and writing a lot more poetry. I’ve created an album of poems on my personal Facebook Author page, linked here.

From this place of being and not trying so hard, I notice that things just… happen. For a while, my intention has been to move from writing books that help kids and teens to working directly with them more – hosting workshops and events that will help them connect to themselves and others.

In the past week alone, several opportunities have presented themselves to me to do just that. I’ll be hosting some workshops in Austin, and have been invited to a conference in Sydney, Australia in May to host several days of workshops/talks.

So – things are happening. Slowly, naturally, and without so much pushing. It feels good to slow down, to be, and to act from a place of inspiration, rather than expectation. It might look a little less active from the outside, but after years of “trying,” this space of allowing feels like home.

More updates coming soon…
