Visiting Author Series: Breaking Through the Block with Catherine Chung

$65.00 Members
$75.00 Non-members

Writing a story is a journey, but what if you're not sure where you're trying to go—or how to get there? What do you do when you hit a block in your story, and find yourself stuck? The barrier is often a resistance in our own minds holding us back: an idea or a feeling that keeps us from moving forward, or a belief we can't see our way around. Exploring that sticking point, and the tension between where we're trying to go and our reluctance to get there (and why), can often reveal the true heart of the story. In this class we'll do generative exercises to surprise and push ourselves, look at old work to identify blocks, and discuss different approaches and questions that can help us break through. Please come prepared to write new material, but also feel free to bring a page or two of old work that you haven't been able to complete, or that doesn't quite feel right, and be ready to share.

This seminar will be followed by a Q&A and book signing. Please join us for a reading and reception the previous evening. Books will be available for purchase through Tattered Cover.
