Program Info:

EMPOWER YOUR WRITING! Our guest speaker, Louise Knott Ahern will dig into what is blocking your creativity and help get those words flowing once again in a special hands-on workshop.

We all get stuck. Sometimes it’s a scene we can’t seem to plow through, or perhaps an entire book that stymies our every effort to finish. Every time, we’re tempted to grab the nearest pint of Ben & Jerry’s to eat away our writer’s block. But it’s not writer’s block! There’s no such thing. There is only a lack of empowerment in your writing. Everything you need to go from first chapter to bestseller is already inside your brain. It started growing the instant you planted the initial seed of your idea. You just need to learn to unlock it! Louise Knott Ahern, an award-winning journalist, fiction writer and writing coach/editor with more than 20 years of experience, has the key!
