(Re)Building Confidence as a Writer [Bonnie Rough]
All Levels | Have you struggled to call yourself a writer? Have you gotten stuck, lost your mojo, faced profound change, or otherwise retreated from writing and now want to find your way back? It might surprise you to hear that things like public recognition, awards, and commercial success are like the empty carbs of an artist’s creative metabolism. What gives writers and other artists sustained, deep, authentic confidence is artmaking itself. This class is all about nourishing the creative soul and limbering up the writerly physique. We’ll take in heaps of inspiring wisdom about the creative process, and through plentiful exercises and lots of fresh starts in a supportive group, we’ll build up writerly confidence like the muscle it is.
