GOAL AND STRUCTURE OF THE WORKSHOP:

The workshop is aimed at people who want to explore writing as a gifted individual. People who have a secret writing dream that has been gathering dust, and who’d like to develop their unique, gifted writing voice and touch readers in a truthful and authentic way. In the course of the workshop and depending how much time they can commit, each participant will embark on a writing adventure. In the online sessions, we will discuss these projects and give mutual, constructive feedback on each other’s texts. Additionally, we’ll discuss a number of selected topics. And in between sessions, there will be additional tips, guidance, and exercises.

THEMES INCLUDE:

  • Understanding the writing process for gifted people
  • Developing a unique, truthful writer’s voice
  • Finding inspiration, everywhere
  • Experimenting with structure, language, style, perspective, …
  • Selecting one’s readers and communicating with them
  • Submitting writing to a public, including autobiographic writing
  • Giving & receiving constructive feedback
Writing is a craft. It takes practice and patience, countless rewrites, and many, many hours alone at your computer. Having a group of gifted peer writers who get you and how your unusual mind works, who give you inspiration and feedback, and who push you to meet deadlines is an invaluable part of the process.
