Our 8-week freewriting-based mini-course, Learn to Love the Writing Process has been very popular, and so many people said that learning this non-judgemental, intuitive method has totally freed them up when they sit down to write.
By popular request, two years ago we began offering a 6-month writing intensive that took the experience deeper, covering almost all the writing exercises techniques in Writing Open the Mind, as well as the concepts that inspired them. It’s been full every year, and we’re offering it again in 2023!
We start with some of the core techniques for loosening up your writer’s mind, such as: “intuitive juxtaposition,” the “oysters of word sounds,” and tapping into different locations of the brain to “prism” the mind. Then we’ll deepen into these, as well as explore:
I also want to give you a full box of tools and psychological approaches to help you work through any future stuck places you may encounter, a toolbox that you can use for years afterwards. You’ll also get sustained connection with the same group of people, and more time to work with me on the project(s) you care about.
Instead of teaching formulaic techniques, (such as “concrete description,” or “character development,” “plot structure” etc.) it is more important to create a nourishing environment that helps writers access the richness of their own consciousness, and build powerful writing naturally from there.
Each week you join your group online and get a key technique to let you experience freedom and enjoyment in writing. Then we will do a short, fascinating freewriting together—you’ll be producing powerful, surprising new material right away, on whatever topic you choose.
Next, pair off with a writing partner in a “breakout room” and–without judgement or criticism–you can read your new work (optional! ) to your partner get our signature kind of supportive, detailed and mind opening feedback.
Lastly, we all come back together and you can share your experience with the group and ask any questions of the instructor.
