Hands On: Just Write: Putting the Free-Writing Back in Blogging ATTENDEE LIST LOCKED IN - NO CHANGES FULL

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

THE HANDS-ON SESSIONS ARE CLOSED. (9/13/2013)

Regardless of attendee registrations/unregistrations or waitlisters being moved into session, those changes will not be made on the official attendance list (see FB Group) and will not allow you admittance to the session.


This session will focus on writing without hesitation -- no editing or over-thinking while writing. The intent is to bring people back to the heart of good writing -- allowing the words to tell their own story by writing from within and watching the story (and therefore theme) unfold. Attendees will spend time practicing this technique while being instructed on how to do it well.

What you'll learn:
  1. Understand exactly what free-writing means. 
  2. Learn ways to let go and actually practice free-writing. 
  3. Write in a more meaningful way. Attendees will have examples to take with them of the difference between writing that is forced to achieve something and writing that reveals its message with emotion; poetic, descriptive and relatable.

Because this is a hands-on writing session, please bring something to write with. That can be a pen and paper, laptop, tablet, or whatever works for you.
