Sometimes writing can seem daunting, and even seasoned and successful writers experience periods of doubt. Accepting these doubts can actually help alleviate them. This class examines various theories about the creative cycle and presents exercises and tips for writers in all genres. You'll also be guided through an analysis of your own creative and problem-solving processes and preferences. The goal: to increase your confidence in order to write boldly and look forward to sharing with readers.

Through supportive discussions, we'll take comfort in knowing we aren't alone, reflect on what factors may influence our doubts, and practice counseling-inspired ways to work up confidence. During the class, you'll write creatively in response to prompts, complete a goal-setting worksheet, receive a list of community resources, and have an opportunity to make a personalized "cheat sheet" card for next time you need a boost! This class is suitable for writers at all levels, and also great for anyone returning to writing.
