SummaryAuthor and writing instructor Beth Slattery helps you get reconnected with your writing and experiment with how to make progress on your project. For all types of writers.
DescriptionIf you consider yourself a writer, proclaim to love writing, but find a million things to do before you “let” yourself write, then this class is for you. In this two-hour session, students of all levels will explore why we do it (hint: it’s not because we are lazy or have poor time-management skills!), how to use procrastination to our advantage, and how to develop a strategy to use individual strengths to work around the blocks we put in our own path. Come with a writing project in mind that you’ve been putting off and leave with both enthusiasm and a practical plan to make it a reality.

Beth Slattery’s most recent work has appeared in “Assay: A Journal of Nonfiction Studies” and “Southern Women’s Review.” She has an MA in fiction writing from Miami University and an MFA in creative nonfiction from the University of Southern Maine. After 18 years of teaching creative writing and literature at Indiana University East, she moved to Seattle where she writes, edits, and teaches at Hugo House. She is currently working on a collection of personal essays.
