Writers have long used the daily journal not only to record events from their inner and outer worlds, but to nurture and deepen their creative work. The writer’s journal is a way to teach ourselves greater attentiveness and awareness, to reveal to ourselves our deepest concerns, subjects, and themes, and to stay engaged with language and the process of writing.
During this webinar, we’ll discuss the nuts and bolts of a daily writing practice, look at guides and sources of inspiration, and examine strategies for developing publishable work from journal entries. We’ll look at tools and tips for creating and sustaining a daily writing practice; we’ll also do an exercise together that will help you get started, or restarted.
