The Japanese art of Haiku - a stand-alone three-line poem - has existed for hundreds of years. The brevity of the framework captures the essence of any idea because there is room for only the most important pieces. My method quickly gets beneath the surface of any challenge, experience or story in an engaging, fun way.

The students were engaged from the start and Staci held their attention with her interactive teaching style and ability to connect. We're excited to have her back this year!
Matt Pelfrey/Graduate Program Director, MFA in Screenwriting and Playwriting
Staci is a rather magical creative force. She helps you find the soul of your work through an art form that encourages efficiency, clarity, and specificity. It's something all writers and creators can benefit from.

Staci 's bubbling optimism, gentle encouragement and non-judgmental approach empower my students to identify the moments of the semester that had the biggest impact and understand how they'll employ those lessons in their careers.
