Getting Over Writer’s Block - Remote!
Facing the blank page can be a difficult and motivation-killing experience. Writer’s block can be paralyzing, and even a prolific writer may find a moment where it seems the muse has left town. This class is designed to teach you how to kick the muse in the ass and make it work on your terms.
In this interactive workshop, writers will experience a series of exercises designed to cure you of your writer’s block, demystify the writing process and teach you how to write on demand. We will discuss the main causes of writer’s block and give you a complex set of tools you can use to overcome it. Most of all, we'll write. Come with a project to work on and plan on leaving with a chunk of it completed.
This workshop is perfect for writers of any genre looking to put the block behind them for good as well as prolific writers looking for tools to up their output.
This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.
