Where does writing come from? Where do you get your ideas, and how do you keep going when you’re feeling stuck or uninspired? This workshop will provide you with lots of prompts to spark your imagination and time to get started on new work. Whether you’re a poet, fiction writer, essayist, or general lover of writing, you’ll find suggestions that will help and encourage you. We’ll also talk about how to establish and maintain a writing practice in the midst of the busy-ness and distractions of daily life, and I’ll provide you with tips you can use to create time for your writing. You’ll leave with writing exercises and readings to help you continue writing.
