Transform your daily grind into meaningful artistic output.



Additional Information

If you find yourself burned out or in a creative rut after completing a big project, this webinar will teach you how a notebook practice can help revitalize your writing practice and infuse your creative life with new energy and techniques.

You’ll establish a system that helps you make use of the information and experiences you gather daily, allows concepts and images to interact on the page in instructive ways, and encourages a sustainable writing practice that can last a lifetime.

Using real-life examples, this webinar will both show you how to keep a writer’s notebook and explain why it works for writers of nonfiction, in particular.

In this webinar, you will:

  • LEARN practical tips for how to start your own writer’s notebook
  • UNDERSTAND the theory behind notebooks and why they work especially well for nonfiction writers
  • IDENTIFY ideas you already have and learn how to turn those into new essays
  • UTILIZE the neurological and creative benefits of “play,” allowing for writing careers that are both sustainable and fun

This webinar is beneficial for all writers who have the goal of generating more writing and creating a sustainable writing practice in small spaces in their day.

All registrants receive a recording.

Closed captioning will be available.
