Do you want to write but typically struggle to make it happen? Maybe you can’t write at all, or end up disliking the words you’ve put down. Perhaps you’re a writer who’s written entire books but now feels completely stuck on the page?

The good news is a few changes to your process can get you writing again!

In this friendly and encouraging workshop with acclaimed memoirist Cathy Rentzenbrink you’ll take a forensic look at the reasons why writers get stuck and as you move through the day, will bust through all the blocks.

You’ll leave feeling energised and encouraged, with more understanding of your own creative process and plenty of practical suggestions to take into your writing future. This writing day is particularly suited to writers whose project has a life event or autobiographical content at its heart but who aren’t sure whether to write memoir/non fiction or a novel.
