So You Want To Write

This day-long workshop is designed for those who wish to write seriously, but may be having difficulties in beginning or maintaining a focused creative writing practice.

So You Want To Write is a workshop designed to instil confidence in writers and to give them a renewed understanding of what is required to begin, continue or complete a writing project. Participants will come away with strategies to manage tendencies towards procrastination and self-doubt, and suggestions to assist and encourage creativity.

Through a series of dynamic writing exercises, personal feedback and key insights into the creative practice, this workshop will assist you in developing techniques to keep you motivated, disciplined in the lonely hours at your desk, and able to maintain a healthy and productive relationship with your writing.

Please bring your laptop or a writing pad – and come prepared for day of intensive writing, reflection and discussion, led by two experienced writers and industry professionals. 

This is a day-long workshop. Morning and afternoon tea will be provided, and there is a 45-minute break for lunch. Kathleen Syme Library is close to public transport, and there is parking nearby. All participants also receive a goodie bag of resource material to keep you motivated long after the workshop has concluded. For further information, please email info@killyourdarlingsjournal.com
