The Writing Workout - exercises and strategies to jumpstart your imagination and write with confidence

$65

with Kate Johnston, Kittery Adult Education

Calendar Mar 11, 2024 at 6:30 pm

Writer’s block and imposter syndrome are just two of the dozens of obstacles making it supremely difficult for writers to reach goals in their writing journeys. Don’t let those obstacles stop you in your tracks. You can reach your writing goals with confidence as long as you commit to working out your imagination on a regular basis. The Writing Workout is designed to help you stimulate your creativity, strengthen your ideas, get un-stuck, build your skills, write with confidence, and take on writing as an adventure.

If you want to learn what kind of writer you are, which conditions support your writing (and which ones hinder), how to trust and use your imagination, how to make time to write, learn new techniques or master time-honored ones, how to start, push through, or finish a project, this is the workshop for you. (In case of inclement weather, class will be held on Zoom.)

5 Monday sessions

March 11-April 8, 6:30-7:30pm
