How to Conquer Writer’s Block, Anxiety, Competitive Envy, and the Other Evil Voices Inside You

Fri, April 12 from 7:00 pm PDT
925 SW Washington Street Portland, OR 97205

Are you ready to get real about the emotional struggles that we bring to our writing? In this evening of conversation, we’ll explore everything from the anxiety of exposure to the crippling doubts that drive us into writer’s block—without judgment or platitudes. No question is off limits: Can I tell the truth about my abusive parent? Is it wrong to be jealous of a famous friend? What if I’m just not good enough? At the center of our discussion is a radical question: Is it possible to view moments, and even eras, of creative doubt as necessary and even essential to our artistic growth? How can we move from anxiety and self-loathing to forgiveness and curiosity? An event with Steve Almond, for anyone who’s ever struggled to get going—and keep going—at the keyboard.
