Online Class | Writing, Fear, and Building a Personal Practice [Anne Liu Kellor]
Introductory / Intermediate | Writing, Fear, and Building a Personal Practice, will run via Zoom and email on Friday mornings, a rare daytime class! In this workshop we will examine our work patterns, challenges, goals, intentions, internalized beliefs, and fears through freewriting and discussion. We will write from a wide range of prompts, share, and discuss the process of creating a “writing life” — from solitary rhythms to writing groups — drawing inspiration from Natalie Goldberg, Beth Pickens, David Bayles and Ted Orland, Faith Adiele, and more.
This class is the perfect antidote to our times, or to any time of stagnation or crisis where you may wonder, “Why bother writing?” And I will say: Because it feeds us. Because we need to. Because expressing all of our complicated feelings, stories, and connections—and hearing the stories of others alongside us— allows us to release tension, to feel heard, to give back, and to be more free.
