No Fear

To write, you need courage: whether that’s bringing the piece you want to write into existence or not being afraid of what your audience (or reader) might think, or finding the time in a busy working life to put words on a page. This workshop will look at topics like self-censorship, learning to trust your writerly instinct (and recognizing it in the first place), being honest in what you write, and how to be brave in terms of subject, metaphor, language and voice.
