Writing Through Doubt: Creative Process for Artists & Writers

Doubt rides shotgun in your creative journey. Doubt is a gift made just for you, but you have to know how to unwrap it if it’s going to be of any use.

This two day, all-level, cross-discipline workshop will include in-class writing, exercises, readings, and discussion to help you uncover the good news about your doubt. Whether you are a beginner or a more established artist or writer, this workshop will help you advance your practice while the cross-discipline aspect will enrich your understanding of creative process.

Using writing as a tool of discovery will help you get closer to your most authentic work so that you leave with a plan and strategies to execute it.

All levels welcome
