Writers Helping Writers: Using Writing Prompts to Spark Your Creativity

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Author and editor Audrey Kalman will speak on how to use writing prompts to spark your creativity. A prompt can be a great way to jumpstart your writing, especially when you’re feeling uninspired or dreading facing the blank page. But not everyone loves prompts! In this interactive writing session, Audrey Kalman will share how she went from prompt-doubter to prompt-lover, explore which kinds of prompts work in different writing situations, and guide you through a couple of brief prompted writing sessions. Come with pen and paper or your keyboard at the ready! Contact Cynthia McCarthy at for the Zoom meeting link.

Audrey Kalman is the author of Tiny Shoes Dancing and Other Stories, two novels, and dozens of short stories. A 2020 literary resident at Shuffle Collective, she currently serves as president of the SF Peninsula Branch of the California Writers Club and as support leader for the Brilliant Writer community. She offers writing and editing services to individuals as well as businesses. Find out more at

Writers Helping Writers, organized in partnership with California Writers Club-SF Peninsula Branch and the San Mateo Public Library, is held the second Wednesday of the month fall through spring.
