Write Yourself Free is a creative writing workshop housed in a 19th century carriage house in downtown Westport, Ct. Co-founders, Tish Fried and Patrick McCord, PhD, are committed to excellence in writing instruction and in creating a lively and informative community for writers. Classes are student-centric – students develop critical writing skills through positive reinforcement.

“I own at least fifty books espousing the secrets of writing, and I recently earned my MFA in writing. Yet, I am mesmerized by the fresh insight, wisdom, and inspiration of the series of lectures by Patrick McCord. He has much to say and much to convey, and I want to hear it all.” -Kristin Quisgard
