Participants will gain critical knowledge of how to articulate a goal, break it down into achievable parts, and hold themselves accountable, through community, to see them through. Writing prompts will generate new work that participants can refine further to the workshop.
Have you wondered if it’s possible to take a leap in your writing to impact change on a broader scale? How to pivot from writing “for the sake of art” to writing work that persuades, influences and inspires others to action? This master class begins with a framework that will help you articulate goals, establish a timeline to achieve them, and hold yourself accountable to impact change on a massive scale. Then, we’ll move on to a series of generative writing prompts sure to set your artist soul on fire. You’ll leave this course with a plan to take your work to the next level and accountability buddies who will make sure you stick to your plan.
