Leila Chatti Poetry is Fun! How to Banish Writer’s Block, Overcome Fear, & Recover Your Original Spark – LIVE Poetry March 18 to March 22, 2024 Number of Participants: 12 Price: $575.00 Format: 1 Week - LIVE Zoom Workshop

LIVE via ZOOM: 7pm-9pm (Eastern Time)

In the course of pursuing publication or a career built around writing, many writers find themselves frustrated, anxious, or creatively blocked, and it can be difficult to find a way back to the original love of writing for its own sake.

In this workshop, we will work to disrupt writer’s block, doubt, and reluctance to approach the blank page. Through prompts, games, and a variety of other techniques, we will generate new work and begin to jostle you out of whatever rut you may have found yourself in. Come write—I promise it will be fun!
