You love to write, perhaps it's torture... Either way you wish you were doing more of it.
In this two-day class, we'll get you writing again through a series of tools, exercises and discussions from famous creativity and writing experts such as Natalie Goldberg, author of "Writing Down The Bones" and Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way."
Bring a pen and paper. Laptops are optional. We will be writing by hand. You can also bring a laptop for our afternoon session, if you want. You'll be glad you took the plunge.
This is a perfect opportunity to jump start your writing in a rare two-class session from the Brainery. By the end of the workshop, you'll come away with strategies to keep you going and a working writing draft.
