Writing Through Challenging Times // Webinar

How to maintain your creativity in an uncertain world

Writing Through Challenging Times // Webinar

Feeling unmoored by current events? You're not alone. 

2020, it seems, is the year of unending flux. Month after month, the world continues to shift beneath our feet.

These dramatic changes can impact not just your creativity, but what you believe about your most important writing projects.

During this one-hour webinar, you’ll learn how to:

  • USE mindfulness to quiet the external chatter;
  • DISCOVER and nurture your creative center;
  • IDENTIFY how to proceed with your work in progress;
  • DEVELOP a clear vision for how your project fits into our brave new world.

This is a webinar for writers who feel unmoored by current events; fear their work is no longer relevant; have stalled projects; or are looking to re-engage with their creativity and/or creative projects.
