The Yin and Yang of a Writer's Life
experiential workshop
with Jan Phillips

writer's desk This is a six-week online intensive writing workshop that deals with the intuitive, interior creative side and the logical, external marketing side of a writer’s life.

We will cover both the WHY-TO and the HOW-TO of our craft, since it is the fusion of both that leads to creative combustion and commercial success.

We'll be joined by guest authors and poets, will have writing prompts every week to warm up, and there’ll be plenty of time during each class for Q&A. You can submit questions during the week if you'd like.

Some of the areas we’ll cover include:

Getting clear on why you’re writing and who are your readers
Finding your voice and trusting its authority whether you're writing songs, novels, blogs, non-fiction, or poetry
Making the proper time and space to support your work
Approaching your writing as a spiritual practice
Knowing how to sustain your enthusiasm & where to go when you need help
Wrestling with the publish/self-publish/do I need an agent conundrums
Using every avenue for creating your platform, growing your audience and expanding your creative reach

Each session is approximately 90-minutes.
