Creative Writer's Boot Camp: Two Day Workshop


Snap to attention in this practical workshop that helps you craft a productive writing practice, complete with short-term plans for success.


What you can learn.

  • Develop your personalized writing practice to further progress on your work
  • Design a 30-day plan focused on a specific writing project or goal
  • Discuss writing craft subjects to help you focus your writing and revising
  • Disengage from your cruel inner critic to empower compassionate self-editing techniques

About this course:

In this 2-day workshop writers develop a productive writing practice and deepen their knowledge of the craft of writing. We dedicate the first day to designing achievable 30-day plans for success with a writing project and developing skills for recognizing and neutralizing the undermining powers of resistance and the inner critic. The second day of the workshop will focus on the art of craft (plot, character, voice) and to the practice of compassionate self-critique. Both days will include time for in-class writing, revision and safe, supportive feedback.
