Writing is hard work! 
And that's before we even get to the disappointments, rejection and challenges that all writers inevitably face. We're often at the mercy of external forces we can't control - so how do we stay motivated and focused? Your ability to persevere, roll with punches and cultivate resilience is what sets you apart from those who give up when the going gets tough.

So how's your inner game?  Is your attitude and mindset helping or hindering your creative path?  Does rejection or failure affect you for much longer than it should?

This half-day workshop with screenwriter and writing coach Kathryn Burnett is designed to help writers improve their inner game and stay motivated.
