Do you have a novel inside you waiting to be written? Is there a memoir you’ve felt called to create for years but have yet to complete a chapter or even a paragraph? Is there a poetry or short story collection deep in your heart that you have yet to manifest? Join us for a three day immersion and FIND YOUR WAY IN to the project. During the workshop, a series of dynamic writing promprts from the instructor will allow you to write thousands of words directly relating to your project. There will be a laser beam focus on the story you want to tell. When it comes to writing a book, often the biggest challenge is finding your way in. Once you step inside, momentum is everywhere. Unlock the door to your book, step inside, and never look back. All genres welcome. Along with being highly productive, this three day experience will be joyful, relaxed, and lighthearted. We will have fun as we find our way in.
