Honor and empower the writer in you.
Now Write! editor Laurie Lamson will lead a creative writing “incubator” workshop designed to give you:
The kick-start you need for a specific project or just to get you writing in general.
Help developing your unique voice and staying motivated as a writer.
Deeper understanding of the overall culture purpose of storytelling.
A break from the inner critic and a nonjudgmental, idea-inspiring approach to feedback.
Thought-provoking creative writing exercises to get your juices really flowing.
The result: you will improve both your craft and your relationship with yourself as a writer.
Quiet the inner critic and get your creative juices flowing.
You will be guided through some of Laurie’s favorite exercises from the Now Write! series to quiet the inner critic, get your creativity flowing and work on key elements of writing.
A safe creative environment will be established through a non-judgmental approach to feedback to avoid premature criticism that tends to stifle good writing.
This interactive Master Class is limited in size, so you receive a maximum amount of individual attention in a workshop environment. Become a better more empowered writer. Get personal attention on your work and career– insight you will not receive anywhere else!
