Have you had this conversation?
Person: You are so inspiring. You should write a book.

Yes? Then this weekend-long writing workshop is for you. Whether your goal is to write a non-fiction piece decrying inspiration porn, a flash fiction story for a magazine, or your own scandalous memoir, a few tricks of the trade will make the blank page before you a little less intimidating.
New and seasoned writers are welcome to join Lisa Hislop, a professional fiction editor, to learn a little bit about all the stages of the writing process:
- Four different ways to get the ideas out of your head and onto the page
- The importance of a shitty first draft
- The difference between the writer’s job and the editor’s job
- How to share your writing
This workshop is guaranteed to be more inspiring than your average random grocery story interaction.
