About the Event
In this workshop:
Ah the trash fire that is 2020. No more blowing out candles on birthday cakes, much less actual parties because of CoVid 19. Few schools. Everyone working from home. Election year and ALL the phone calls that go with it. It’s one thing after another, and the rotten cherry on top of the 2020 crap sundae is that the bars are closed. How’s a writer to write in the middle of it all when most of us are fantasizing about hiding in the attic just to get a little alone time? You aren’t going mad. Entirely. Your brain is overloaded and that can be fixed. Come pick up a few tools to carve out a little creative space for yourself and your work.
