Stories Alive! Writing Workshops



“Where do I begin to tell you how much this class has helped me as a writer! Tania so skillfully created an environment rich in diversity and genre where I felt supported and safe to explore and challenge my own writing. I learned so much from a craft perspective, and the group became a community of friends who were truly interested in moving everyone forward. This class is a gem and a rare find.”

– Peggy Belles, author of the poetry collection, Peace in Pieces, founder of Peggy Belles Transformational Consulting, yoga instructor and retired Police Lieutenant


“Stories Alive! has helped me dig deeper as a travel writer, multi-layering with material that’s compelling and showing personal moments of vulnerability readers can relate to. Tania has a knack for developing a sense of camaraderie among workshop participants. Not only has my writing become stronger but I’ve gained new friendships in the process.”

– Dodie Maillet, travel writer


“I believe that when the student is ready the teacher appears, and you certainly did. Thank you for all your support. It’s been an amazing journey!”

– Nancy Napoli, memoir and short story writer


“Tania, your comments and thoughtfulness have been so inspiring. You’ve taught me to keep my writer’s antenna up at all times. I find myself, thanks to you, thinking about great first lines, suspense, negative space, and more!”

– Arlen Gargaliano, cookbook author, educator, fiction writer and blogger at
