Elizabeth Stark: Battling Demons and Chasing Whims: How to Build a Meaningful, Inspired Writing Practice

Even for those of us passionate about writing, it can be such a challenge to build a consistent, productive writing practice. This workshop will help you find your own organic path to integrating writing into your daily life in a pleasurable, inspiring way, and showing up on the page with courage and curiosity.

Elizabeth Stark is the author of the novel, Shy Girl (FSG/ Seal Press), writer/ director of two films distributed by Frameline, and cohost of a StoryMakersShow. She teaches and mentors writers at BookWritingWorld.

Writers Forum has been pivotal in getting me motivated, focused, and published. Thank you for such a wonderful venue. — D. Zelenakova
