Finding the Fun: Approaching Writing with Playful Experimentation and Compassion
What you do when your writing feels stalled or blah can make the difference between an incomplete draft and a published, or even bestselling one. There’s a secret to success that’s NOT about grinding it out in a harsh and arduous way to meet your writing goals. What if you could make it fun and write (and rewrite) with a sense of ease instead? If you’ve been what the The New York Times describes as languishing creatively during the pandemic, facing a second book curse or feeling stuck in the messy middle of a manuscript, this workshop is for you. Join author and creative writing instructor Suzanne Alyssa Andrew for an exploration of imaginative and compassionate approaches to reinvigorate your writing practice.
This workshop inspires writers to be daring in their storytelling. In a crowded marketplace it's daring writers who stand out. Please inquire for a full description.
