You would write if you only had more time, or a writing space, or if you could decide which project to bring to fruition. Maybe you do write, but it’s in a coffee shop where you can’t access your books, your files, and there’s definitely not a wall where you can hang your storyboard, acceptance letters, or inspiring artwork. Or you have written, but are so disorganized you can’t keep track of your submissions—if you’re managing to submit your work at all.
In this workshop, through a combination of lecture, discussion, handouts, images of writers’ rooms, and focused writing sessions, we’ll clarify what you need to make room to write. We will consider obstacles that stand in the way of your writing, discuss organizing and time management principles so you can make room to write in your physical space and in your schedule, and explore what your writing space needs and what it doesn’t so that you can be inspired, productive, and organized.
