Writing for Procrastinators

Loading Events

Struggling to start—or finish—that story, article, poem, or essay? Committed to make real headway in the next six weeks? This class is for you. With short readings and weekly writing assignments, you’ll explore what keeps you from writing. As a group, we’ll discuss obstacles to success, and experiment with a variety of strategies to break our bad habits and build healthier writing routines. Join us to stretch beyond your comfort zone and make real progress on one specific piece. Bring your calendar to the first session. Note: No meeting on April 18.
