About My Creative Writing Workshops (North of Boston, Merrimack Valley and New England)

Writing Workshops for Wellness, Advocacy and Self-Empowerment

Writing Workshops for Wellness, Advocacy and Self-Empowerment

I have been leading creative writing workshops and classes with adults and teens for over 17 years. I teach on the North Shore, locations in the Merrimack Valley and in New York and New England.

As well as a degree in teaching, a master's in English and extensive experience in writing, editing and publishing, I have an in-born capacity to listen, inquire and empathize.  

Online Learning and In-Person Workshops

I believe in delivering a value-packed, content-rich class in which each student gets to work toward his or her defined and targeted learning outcomes. I also have training and a background in narrative medicine, and I have developed and delivered curricula via in-person and online learning platforms or distance learning.

Workshop Fees

The fees vary and are always affordable. Also, see details (below) about my free workshop on advocacy writing (OpEds, opinion essays) for immigrant advocacy and refugee support nonprofits.

Testimonials on Creative Writing Workshops

If you ever get a chance to meet Ms. Greaney or attend one of her workshops, I highly recommend it. She is a delight to listen to ... very clear and demanding speaker who holds your attention, makes you laugh, and says a lot of very true things that make you think, and keep thinking ... the overall impression is of kindness, hilarity, and respect.

You really seemed to connect with all of us in the audience, and you said so many things that made sense to me as a writer.
— Participant, National Writers Digest Conference, New York City
I thought you led a fabulous group and got us all going into areas we didn’t even suspect we’d travel to in the course of a day and a half. I do appreciate a really good workshop leader, and you are among the very best
— Student, The Cape Cod Writers Center
Aine’s the best! She really cares about your writing and helps you to work toward publishing.

I don’t know how you did it, but you got me writing again.

Free (Yes, Free!) Writing Workshops for Immigrant Advocacy Organizations and Nonprofits

As someone who has come through the U.S. immigration system, I plan to offer my advocacy-writing workshop pro-bono (no fee) to Boston-area groups or non-profits who support immigrant rights or provide advocacy-related services for immigrants and refugees.  Contact me for details.
