An online workshop with Catherine Johnson

6:00pm pacific time – two-hour workshop sessions
Registration $240 (Fishtrappers $215)
There is no shortage of advice for writers on how to build a prolific writing practice, but life doesn’t always make space to accommodate this wisdom. In this workshop, we’ll talk about logistical writing challenges, strategies for overcoming writers’ block (or writers’ overwhelm if you have too many ideas and don’t know where to start), how to be real about balancing your writing with YOUR life, and dedicate workshop time for your own practice. This is for writers of any genre, at any stage in the writing process, who want to strengthen their practice through connection with a writing community. Registrants can expect to get practical ideas for breaking through their specific obstacles, but also dedicated time during the workshop when they can count on having the time to write.
