Promotion of Writerly Reflection, Stimulation & Determination Workshop

This session may ask you to step outside, both literally and figuratively, from what you’re already doing now.

“As a Poetry Pharmacist I have had many years of administering to the terrible afflictions that beset many writers, both at the start of their writing lives and that often return, like scabies, to irritate and bring dismay even in well-established writing careers. This session may ask you to step outside, both literally and figuratively, from what you’re already doing now. If taken as advised, it will assist with developing habits of noticing, of becoming habitually and intuitively creative, to come at your work slant and to practice self-care.” Deborah Alma
