Who Is This Class For?

 

This class is designed specifically for writers who:

Are afraid to start writing anything, or are currently not writing at all.

Start a lot of writing projects but finish very little.

Have trouble focusing on working on one story at a time.

Want desperately to be a “real writer” but feel like an imposter or a fraud.

Feel frozen/numb or agitated/upset with themselves every time they sit down to write.

Constantly hear the voice of their inner critic when writing, which sends them into self-doubt and despair.

Feel a deep sense of shame about their writing and like they are a “failure” as a writer.

I talk more in the video below about why I developed this course, what it covers, and what to expect from it:

How Does It Work?

 

Class is in session from 5:00 – 6:30 pm PST every Tuesday evening in August 2020. Classes are held over Zoom, with Lauren teaching for the first 45 minutes to an hour, and the remainder of the time used for Q&A. Each class is recorded and made available within 24 hours for streaming. Class members have lifetime access to all class recordings.

 

Class members also have access to a live “silent writing session” held every Thursday evening in August, from 5:00-6:15 pm PST, also over Zoom. Lauren will hold the space for writers to sit and write together virtually, and writers are welcome to come and go as they please. (Everyone’s microphone will be off, so no one will notice if you come late or leave early.) Lauren will start the hour of writing and call time at the end.

 

Journaling assignments are emailed to class members each Wednesday. Class members have the week to complete the assignment. (There is no need to share your answers with the group, although you are welcome to do so if it feels comfortable.)

 

A private Facebook group is available to all class members. The Facebook group will stay open and active even after class has officially ended, functioning as a supportive sounding board for all members who are interested in continuing relationships within the group.
