Instructor: Natalie Serber
For Writers at All Levels

In this 3 hour discussion and workshop we will spend time digging down to discover what gets in the way of our creative freedom. How we are often our own worst enemies, and offer up thirteen practical ways to overcome the sludge of stuck! Once we’ve dissected our difficulties, we’ll spend time writing together, using prompts as a backdoor into our manuscripts, whether we’re starting something brand new, or in the midst of a long project. Come, recapture some joy at your writing desk!
