Need to kickstart to your creativity? Writing can be an extremely powerful tool for personal exploration and transformation. In this class we will explore our motivations for why we write and what creative blocks keep us from the page. |
About the Instructor:
Maureen McDole was born in St. Petersburg. She is a direct descendant of carnies, carpenters and fishermen. This do-it-yourself ethos in her DNA infuses every area of her life.

In December 2008, Maureen graduated from USF-St. Petersburg with a BA in English Literature. Her second poetry book, Longing for the Deep End, was released in December 2011. Maureen is currently working on her third collection of poems. Her poetry has been set in a variety of different ways including: film, dance, spoken word, art installations, Sprechstimme, and traditional vocal works. She is the recipient of St. Petersburg Art Alliances 2016 MUSE Award for Literary Arts. She is also the VP of Friends of the Mirror Lake Library. Maureen has been leading workshops and speaking about creativity for over 15 years. She founded Keep St. Pete Lit because she believes wholeheartedly in the power of literature to change the world.
