Writing Workshop with Helen Sword

Writing & Wellbeing
Tuesday, July 27, 2021
4:00-5:30pm Eastern time (US and Canada)

Are the pressures of productivity, perfectionism, and/or the pandemic taking a toll on your health and wellbeing? Establish a calming, nurturing writing routine that will replenish your physical and emotional energy rather than sucking you dry.

Helen Sword is a poet, scholar, master teacher, and international expert on academic, professional, and creative writing across the disciplines.

This workshop will be available free of additional charges to all registrants at the conference, but you will need to pre-register for the event so we can gauge attendance needs. This will be a “live” event offered only at the time listed, and you MUST be registered for the full conference to attend.

More coming soon on other workshop opportunities.
