Join us for a workshop with Anne Lamott. Whether it’s your first or you’ve never missed one, you will walk away with new information and inspiration.

Workshop Description
Writing is hard, and the process mysterious. Why do we write when it can be so painstaking, and the voices in our heads say we’re kidding ourselves, and no one will want to read what we have written, and publication is a long shot?

Why? Because we can’t not write. We don’t feel we are living up to something deep inside when we don’t get out stories, memories, and visions down on paper.

And how do we even know where to start, and what to write, and how to write?

These are some of the things I’ll be talking about in this workshop, as well as answering questions, and cheering you on.
