Craft and productivity workshops

Happy New Year! I’m very excited to be launching 2014 with two learning opportunities. If you’d like to increase the potency of your language or build momentum in your writing life, I hope you’ll join me!

Making It in Changing Times Writing Conference
WORKSHOP: Fierce on the Page: Increase the Potency and Impact of Your Language
Fierce writers create a direct channel to the reader’s nervous system and blood stream. We do this by choosing the language that most effectively propels the story or essay or poem on its unique trajectory. This workshop invites you to be fierce on the page with a series of exercises designed to invigorate your range of language. Together, we will reach deep into our own perceptions, emotions and voice to craft vivid imagery that surprises us. We will awaken our instincts for making powerful word choices that provoke feeling, elevate sound and evoke meaning.
Saturday, January 25 // 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (my workshop happens at 9:15 a.m.)
