Welcome to 27 Powers
the Creative Community
hosted by me, Laurie Wagner

A published writer for over 25 years, and a teacher to thousands of students, I offer weekly writing classes in the Northern California Bay Area for beginning and well-seasoned women writers who gather in Alameda and in Berkeley. I also offer creative writing classes online through my  e-course Telling True Stories, as well as daily writing prompts delivered to your inbox through 27 Days. You can also find my creative writing classes at writers.com.

I produce the 27 Powers Traveling Writer Series, which brings world-class poets and writers – like Ellen Bass, Tony Hoagland, Stephen Dunn, Marie Howe, Dorianne Laux, Joe Millar, Deena Metzger, Jen Louden, Alexandra Franzen, Andrea Scher and Philip Gerard – to the San Francisco Bay Area to teach, converse and tell stories.

27 Powers rides on one fierce belief: when we put the truth into words, life swings into focus.

And before too long, telling the truth becomes an unstoppable impulse — an internal river of confidence, clarity and freedom.
