Write your true story. Learn the craft. Join our writing community.
I am Kimberly Garts Crum, owner and instructor at the Shape & Flow Writing studio at the Mellwood Arts Center in Louisville, Kentucky. I enjoyed a social work career before getting my MFA in creative nonfiction. Now, I guide aspiring writers in the retelling of true stories, for publication or posterity.
Due to Covid-19, workshops meet on the Zoom videoconferencing platform. I have jaunted awkwardly into the Zoom space, trying and failing, locking people in the waiting room, accidentally of course. Our workshops remain personal. Our audio is kept on, except when partners or dogs are rowdy. We touch each other with our words. Best of all, persons all over the country can participate; thus, I will continue at least one Zoom workshop after I reopen my studio space!
I lead a monthly legacy writing workshop on the first Wednesday evening of each month, and run six-week memoir/personal essay workshops on Tuesday evenings and Wednesday mornings. Our next six-week workshops begin in March. Find out details of six-week workshops here.

Write, share, listen, and learn.
