Writing Workshop: Inspiration and Action

Remember why you wanted to be a writer?  The love of language, the joy of reading and writing.  But do  you feel you’ve lost your soul to SEO?  Are you tired of expressing yourself in bullet points and subheads?  

Let’s have fun with writing again.  Join me for this morning workshop and we’ll get inspired by the work of award-winning journalists and authors and celebrate how their words soar, their thoughts engage.  

Then we’ll discuss what this means to you, including new ways to publish essays, long-form journalism, and books.
