Conquering Fear as a Writer

Writers Victoria

Event Date: 19 August 2023 10:00 AM
Author / Presenters: [email protected]

Join Koraly Dimitriadis for a workshop that will inspire participants to push boundaries, shed inhibitions and get to the heart of expression. This workshop won't be prescriptive or suggest that there is a "correct" way to write, but will provide techniques for writers who want to build confidence and support participants as they develop courage. This intimate workshop will encourage participants to be fully open to the experience of their truth and provide opportunities to practice sharing writing and/or performance.

You Will Learn:

  • to identify what’s holding you back and overcome hurdles to access your true voice
  • why we care so much about what people think and how that affects our writing
  • how to identify the best medium/s for what it is you are trying to express, and how to carry writing across mediums to convey different meaning
  • to workshop with other writers in a constructive/encouraging way
  • how to get your writing out there, especially when it it’s controversial / unconventional
