All writers get blocked sometimes. Yet it’s those writers who learn how to blast through their blockage and keep on writing that manage to produce work, year after year, and so build themselves a career as a writer. Most aspiring writers dream of being able to make a living from their writing, yet writer’s block makes the process slow and arduous, as well as very time-consuming.

Professional writers have all sorts of tricks and techniques to make sure writer’s block doesn’t become writer’s paralysis. In a fast-paced, intense workshop, learn how to overcome the fear of the blank page and get the creative juices flowing, how to blast through the fears and doubts holding you back, and how to keep your well of creativity overflowing so that you are always brimming over with ideas, energy and enthusiasm. Participants should bring a pen and lots of paper!

Expected Learning Outcomes

  • New understanding of causes of your writer’s block
  • Techniques to build up writing stamina and access flow
  • New creative inspiration and fresh excitement about your writing
