KICKSTART YOUR WRITING with Brittani Sonnenberg
When: April 12th, 10:30-16:30
Where: TBD
Cost: €45

Do you spend precious hours you’ve saved for writing procrastinating? Or is your perfectionism is holding you back? Writing is important to you and yet you don’t do it as much as you’d like (or sometimes not at all)…well help is at hand! Whether you are a beginner writer or restarting, or just simply want some assistance getting ahead of the writing-head-game, on April 12th Brittani Sonnenberg will be hosting the workshop for you.

Over the course of one day, you’ll discuss how to develop a consistent writing routine, access your imagination and learn to let go. In addition to taking part in practical writing exercises designed to reignite and revivify your practice, you’ll mull over writerly advice and reflections from luminaries such as Joan Didion, Anne Lamott and Ellen Sussman.

Places are limited. To reserve yours please email - clicking 'attending' can't guarantee you a spot.
