Balancing our work lives and creative lives, especially over the past two years, can sap our energy to come to the page at the end of the day. In this weekly workshop, we’ll delve into simple ways to tend to our creative lives and keep one another gently accountable to our writing projects when our energy flags. Suitable for new writers needing a supportive space as they begin their practice, as well as experienced writers looking to restore diminished creative drive, this group will offer useful suggestions, easy exercises, and a welcoming discussion space about creative practice.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
