You’ve heard the voices, the ones that say “You can’t…” “You’ll never…” “Who cares?” How are you supposed to start or finish your novel with all that noise in your head? Furthermore, where are these voices coming from? In this workshop we’ll investigate the psychology behind these critical voices through discussions and case histories. We will also explore different techniques we can utilize to overcome these constricting voices, mute them, or even learn to hear them as constructive. We will engage in a series of writing exercises aimed at building your confidence and taking your writing to an exciting and new level of freedom.
Melissa Clark is the author of the novel, “Swimming Upstream, Slowly,” published by Broadway Books, the creator of Braceface, the animated comedy for ABC Family, and a professor of writing and literature at Otis College of Art and Design, in Los Angeles, California.
