RWA OWL: Unlock your creativity

This workshop is all about letting go and putting words on the page. If you struggle with ideas, this is the one for you. Learn to tap into your creative juices with tons of writing exercises, tips and tricks—while drawing on new and exciting writing techniques. You’ll learn to think up big premises for novels and whittle them down to scenes, as well as littler ideas for short stories. Discover how to burst with inspiration on cue. You’ll walk away with a Word doc full of ideas and the skills to know which ones have the most potential.

This course will run for four weeks. 
Course materials will be made available at the beginning of the month in the form of mini-lessons in audio files and downloadable PDF notes for each lesson
Tasks and feedback will be staggered throughout the month
There is a time commitment of 2 hours required to go through materials and on top of this participants can commit as little or as much time as they’d like to the tasks.
