Or, maybe you've just been waiting for someone else to prioritize writing time for you ...
when the reality is that you're missing chances to achieve your literary dreams
because it’s fear keeping you from writing practice.
a writing practice you dedicate yourself to without hesitation—one that inspires you into an ongoing practice for the year. You'll commit to your writing with both short and long-term goals, and be clear what steps you need to take to achieve your writing goals in 2018.
Many moons ago, my wonderful writing group came up with what we called forced writing practice.
It wasn’t some form of torture, quite the opposite. It was a liberating way for us to safely schedule writing time by meeting up and writing together. (Separate and supplemental to the time we spent critiquing each other’s work.)
It worked because we were committed to one another.
Each session brimmed with inspiration. There's nothing quite like basking in the energy of other writers dedicated to their work. Our times together were bookended by great conversations about literature and craft.
Inspired by this experience and knowing how many writers struggle with finding the time to write, I’m offering Lit Writing Practice early in the (North American) day for writers in the month of February 2018.
I'm a published literary author and I formed We Are Lit Writers, based on the idea that just because we write alone, doesn't mean our writing lives have to be lonely.
Offline, I have had the pleasure of being connected to a writing community that has supported me and my writing over decades. I wish this support for all writers. After spending years of mentoring writers and editors, I decided to take this mission to a bigger audience in the form of courses, and now this writing practice.
Lit Writing Practice will take place at 6 a.m. Pacific time on Tuesdays and 6 a.m. Eastern time on Thursdays for the month of February in 2018, via video conference.
Each session will last for 90 minutes and include pre-writing exercises to warm you up, a dedicated (and quiet) time where we write together—soaking up the energy we provide one another—followed by time to (optionally) share about your writing practice. I’ll send you off after each session with challenges for the week to sustain you until our next practice session.
I set this up twice weekly, anticipating students may only be able to attend one session—and pre-writing exercises will repeat. (If you can come twice, bonus writing time for you!)
You'll be notified when registration opens. (And you'll get a lovely discount when it does!)
No. All writers whether new or seasoned, are welcome!
All genres. I have worked with writers of prose, poetry, and mixed-genres.
Yes! I set this up twice weekly, anticipating most writers will only be able to attend one session, and pre-writing exercises will repeat. If you can come twice, bonus writing time for you!
There are no refunds for the Lit Writing Practice. If it turns out you can't make the session, get in touch and I'll likely be able to offer you a credit for a future practice.
Yes! Please get in touch with me at email@example.com and I can provide a gift card and details on how to register your gift recipient when it's time. (I'll also give you 15% off your second registration.)
