We want to write, but sometimes that inner critic gets loud. Really loud. This seminar will help you shed the constraints you may be placing on your work and allow you to access your natural creativity. We’ll look at ways to deal with persistent inner (and outer) critics and move beyond writer’s block.
We will talk about using your past as a catalyst for your current work. In-class exercises will access the passion within you and help you get your authentic voice on the page. We’ll also discuss writing best practices, from ways to approach your first draft to setting boundaries and deadlines to get your work to your publisher.
