Like all good voyages, the writing journey is not about arriving, but the pleasure of exploring. In this one-hour webinar, we focus the zoom lens on getting ourselves into the Write zone. We put out the welcome mat, shake loose some ideas, and get over our fear of flying - to set our stories free.
Bring pen and notebook. Coffee/tea mugs welcome.

Time: 11:00-12:00pm
