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.

There will be time for a Q & A at the end of the presentation.
This webinar is ideal for writers at all levels, especially those who sometimes feel frustrated about discipline or stymied by their own perfectionism and who want to become more fluent and productive.

The mind is an odd and surprising wonderland, but we have trained ourselves to ignore its twists and turns in favor of linear narrative.
You’ve structured your narrative and know your facts–but how do you make your story sing? We’ll go beyond grammar to discover how words and sentence structures deliver comedy, drama, and meaning.
