Writing time is precious. Even without
the pandemic stresses and distractions it's also often either interrupted or
wasted at least in part in procrastination. This workshop is an opportunity to
review our own writing habits; to explore and practise writerly techniques that
can help use precious writing time more efficiently; to set up realistic and
imaginative daily routines; and to analyse when it’s best to ease off and when
to press on.
The workshop will be followed by the opportunity to book a one-to-one consultation with Katie.
