Nina Morrison

The most important quality for artists to cultivate is vulnerability. My teaching is focused on creating a space for writers to feel safe enough to ask questions, take risks and share generously of themselves. My hope is that writers leave my classes knowing that their lived experience is totally unique and filled with insight that only they have and stories that only they can tell.
