I’ll be giving the keynote speech at this full-day workshop that focuses on getting more of your own writing done! 10-minute mini-lessons will provide you with tips on how to overcome some common writing-related fears and productivity difficulties. Each mini-lesson will be followed by a 45-minute writing block where you can either focus on your current work-in-progress, or use our writing prompts as inspiration to write something new. Either way, get ready for a fun-filled and informative day that will bump up your wordcount and boost your confidence!
Over the course of seven creative, productive, resource-packed hours, writers will:
Take part in six author-led Mini Writing Lessons
Write for six sustained 45-minute blocks, designed to maximize productivity, alongside seasoned writers who will offer encouragement, support, and advice
Meet one-on-one with an author who will read your (short!) excerpts, troubleshoot your ideas, doctor your plots, and otherwise help you develop your writing in a private 12-minute writer consultation session
Attend keynote opening and closing remarks from bestselling and award winning authors
Share (included!) lunch and conviviality with fellow writers
Registration will begin at 9:30.
