It's the new year—time to commit (or re-commit) yourself to writing! In this seminar, via discussion and exercises, we’ll inspire you to take the baby steps or big leaps necessary to realize your writing ambitions for 2019, regardless of your genre. We'll debunk common myths about being a writer; talk about common issue like fear of failure, writer's block, and rejection; discuss how to make time for your craft, build a career, define success, and develop habits, tools, skills and resources to make a commitment. You'll leave with a set of goals and an action plan with built-in accountability to make it all happen in the new year. By the end of class, you’ll forge new connections with a community of fellow writers. Please bring a notebook and a pen or writing device.For beginners or anyone looking to re-inspire themselves as writers in 2019.
