Reset Your Writing Goal Post-Lockdown

8 Jun 2020
7.30pm-8.30pm Monday 8 June
A one-hour ONLINE workshop to help you focus on what you really want and re-define your writing goal post lockdown.
Event type: 


Lost sight of your writing goal? Need to re-focus?

The last couple of months have been a wild ride. So no surprises then that those writing goals you set in January might be a distant memory.

Or at the very least have changed.

But now we're edging back towards normality, so maybe it's time to get that writing project back on track.

This workshop will help participants re-assess and re-set their writing goal for 2020.

Participants will:

  • Learn the difference between a firm and soft writing goal.
  • Identify if their writing goal has changed - and why.
  • Identify what their writing dream really is and how to turn it into a firm goal.
  • Assess what will help them achieve their writing goal.
  • Learn the next steps they need to take to achieve their goal

You'll need:

  • Pen & paper
  • Computer
  • Good internet connection
  • Beverage of choice

Once you've registered, we'll be sending you a ZOOM link to join the workshop on the day.

Hope you can join us!
