2. Nothing to Write About: Finding Inspiration in Writer’s Block with Hila Ratzabi on Thursday, November 15 from 10:30 – 14:30
Every writer experiences writer’s block at some point, even the most prolific. It is easy to imagine that we must have dramatic lives in order to tell interesting stories. Or sometimes we do have dramatic lives but imagine that our story has been told before. Regardless of why we have become stuck in our writing, it is possible to return to the simple joy of putting words on the page. We can even invite our demons to the table, by using writer’s block as a source of inspiration. Open to all genres, all levels. Details and registrations here.
