Free Write with Molly Moylan Brown
Creative Writing Practice

We will share ideas about what challenges and what helps to develop and sustain a creative writing practice. We will learn how creative writing practice is distinctly different from ‘journaling’ or ‘morning pages’. We will spend most of our time exploring build-on creative writing exercises to see how we can stretch and open our creative expression from memoir to fiction. Have a choice of photos at the ready - of landscape-only and of single (people) subjects


Molly Moylan Brown  conducts live and online international creative writing classes for native and non-native English speakers. Molly brings her unique background as a writer, director, and performer to her workshops. Her methodology is based on the idea that we all contribute to and are enhanced by the larger, transformative ‘we’ that arises when we embrace our individual differences and celebrate our shared humanity. She also pairs her creative writing and theatrical improvisation classes with other practitioners in the worlds of the arts and healing practices to offer a rich experience in transformation and community vitality, through empowered self-expression and storytelling.

A professionally-trained and award-winning actor, Molly founded and directed Some Assembly Required, a New York City-based theatre company that employed collaborative storytelling and improvisation to entertain and teach self-expression, empathetic listening, negotiation skills, and cross-cultural understanding. Her work at US universities has ranged from guest-taught workshops to serving as Adjunct Professor at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in the Screenwriting & Playwriting and Acting departments. In addition to her work as a teacher and writing coach, she has published flash fiction, poems and short stories, and is currently working on a historical novel set in the 1840’s.

Molly holds a Master of Letters in Creative Writing with distinction from the University of Glasgow and a Master of Philosophy in Film & Theatre with distinction from Trinity College, Dublin.

She is a certified Montessori teacher and is a member of SAG-AFTRA, AEA, and SDC. Molly was recently awarded The Order of Malta for her initiatives on behalf of women, children and refugees living in Berlin. She splits her time between Berlin, Germany and New York City.
