Welcome to the Creative Writing Test Kitchen!

The Creative Writing Test Kitchen

A space to fearlessly stretch your creativity through creative experimentation


Take a break from the “real world” and join a fun and easy creative writing course.


  • Create space in your life for creative writing
  • Experiment with new combinations of words and mixed bowls of metaphors
  • Stretch your creative boundaries until they bounce back
  • Call yourself “creative” or “a writer” without flinching too hard

All for only $95.   (At $19 a session, it’s less than a drop-in yoga class!)


You’re here because you say “Yes!” to creative writing.

That makes you extraordinary, and someone I’m dying to meet.

The Creative Writing Test Kitchen is always in development, so all aspects of it are open to experimentation. Feel free to make demands in the form of requests.

I’ve anticipated your questions are answered them all below. However, I’m not a psychic, so if you need more answers to other questions, please feel free to contact me at pearl @ filthyrichlanguage dot com.



The Creative Writing Test Kitchen will meet live online 5 times over the course of a bit over a month. Each session will last approximately 90 minutes (I usually stick around for questions).

Two sections are open:

Section Q, Tuesdays September 12 at 4pm PDT / 7pm EDT through October 10.

Section Z, Saturdays September 16 at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT / 5pm BST through October 14.

In addition, you will have the option to schedule an individual writing conference for a private discussion with me to get feedback on what you’re currently writing.
Day and time TBA. Cost: $27


Each session starts with a meditation, an idea, a quotation, an exercise, a goal, or a prompt — something designed to get your creative juices flowing.

Then you’ll have time to write on your own, ask me questions, stare at the wall, play with words, get messy, and get creative.

We’ll meet up at the end to check in and set the intention for the following class and the time between.

This live experience is where the core of the action will take place. While I will be recording sessions for posterity, my intention is for them to be interactive, supportive, fun, and totally worth your time! Clear your schedule and lock your writing room door.



I’ll give you my insights, ideas, inspirations, perceptions, poetry, pith, feedback, face time, and natural forces.

You bring the will to play, to test and fail, to risk, to seek out your own writing voice, and to ask questions at any time.



We’ll be using Zoom videoconferencing (a very easy-to-use service). All you need is a computer camera.


Me: Experienced writing teacher, published poet, occasional playwright, copy coach, woman about town.

You: Creative thinker opening the creative window a crack to let ideas flow in and words flow out. (I may have to work on that metaphor.)


You get nearly 8 hours of expert writing instruction for only $95.

Register below. I’ll ask you to share some information to make the Test Kitchen as useful for you personally as I can.

I look forward to seeing you online!

Let the joy of the Creative Writing Test Kitchen begin!

All the support, inspiration, and writing direction and feedback you can swallow — only $95.
