Workshops & Courses
Casey offers workshops and courses on many topics. There are a few examples of previous workshops below, but normally workshops and courses are curated by the attendees or parents to fit the specific needs of the writers. Casey is an expert in differentiation and relationship building, which allows her students and clients to write freely in their own voices about who they are and what matters to them.
Workshops are available virtually or in person within the DMV area.
