How this course works:
You'll join the workshop in a live classroom setting in Geneva, Switzerland. Bring your PC/Tablet, or whatever you like to write with.
Whether you're a beginner, stuck in the middle of a project, or struggling to find the end, this workshop creates the space to get your writing out of you and onto the page. We'll do guided writing sessions with short breaks and a brief Q&A session between each one. The final session is devoted to questions, sharing your work, overcoming self-doubts, and finding some inspiration to keep it up.
This is a highly interactive workshop, so come prepared with whatever you use to write and get ready to roll.
The "feedback" time reserved at the end explores the writing experience, gives you a chance to ask questions from a professional author, and helps you to understand your unique creative process.
Why try Just Write!? In addition to benefiting from the experience of a published author, you'll also catch the creative energy wave of writing in a group. There's power in knowing we're not writing alone.
Show up with your PC, your IPad, your favorite notebook and pen -- whatever way works best for you. Show up in your pajamas if you like, but you will be visible to other participants.
