The next workshop begins on Tuesday, February 8th, at 5 PM, PST.
ARE YOU STRUGGLING TO WRITE YOUR STORY?
You have a story.
You’ve always loved books, language, and writing. And yet, you’re nervous that you’re not a “real writer”?
That’s part of why you’re struggling to find the drive to put pen to paper.
The other part? You’re terrified of writing that story. You know it’s going to change you.
And the legacy of grades, grammar corrections, and not feeling good enough have left you scared to write.
You need a workshop that teaches you to free yourself to write.
It’s time to write your heart out.
Free yourself to tell your story.
How to quiet that stern editor voice that insists you’re not good enough. How to embrace the chaos of creativity instead.
How to place the best of that chaos draft into a structure that starts making sense. Also, how to write with the details of your life.
How to cut, edit, and revise your piece, paying close attention to the sound and sense of each sentence.
How to play with language so every word and sentence says what you mean. How to know when you are done with an essay.
We’ll be working together, working intently with language, listening to each other’s stories, and consciously deciding the words we leave on the page.
This is a workshop about the creative process. It’s about being honest with yourself as a writer.
