January Zoom ’21

Saturday, January 9, 2021
10 a.m. – 1 p.m EST
“Fresh Slate/Fresh Page in 2021”

Since the pandemic forced us to cancel January Jumpstart XXI, TMW will present a Zoom workshop on January 9, 2021, to get everyone in the writing mood and mode:

“Fresh Slate/Fresh Page in 2021”

This Zoom workshop will address the writer as beginner, even when we are experienced, even when we’ve already started or written most of a project. We will explore tools and exercises to help begin a project or begin a project again, generate or develop a new idea, or return to an old idea that for some reason stalled and see that project with new eyes.

These tools and exercises can be used for fiction or nonfiction, prose or poetry, and be beneficial to writers of all levels from novice to seasoned author.

Registration Info

Registration fee: $30
Participation Limit: 30
Registration Deadline: January 2, 2021

Zoom access will be made available after registration
