from 2:00-4:00 p.m.
Instructor: Peg Cheng
For writers at all levels
Telling a writer to write without fear is like telling a human to breathe without oxygen. It’s impossible to do and why would you want to? Fear is a natural part of the creative process. Instead of fighting it, work with it. Through stories, mindfulness, and free-writing, you will discover simple, realistic ways to face your fear, get to know it, and use it to propel your writing, rather than hinder it. With fear on your side, there’s nothing stopping you from being the writer you want to be.
Peg Cheng writes stories that tell the truth about everyday people trying to survive and thrive. Before becoming a full-time writer, Peg worked in 35 jobs including fabric cutter, bus parts counter, career counselor, prelaw adviser, and public toilet researcher. When she’s not writing, she enjoys running Plaid Frog Press with her husband Marcus, globetrotting, and marveling at nature.
