About This Class

Beat writer's block once and for all by developing a free writing practice to unlock your creative powers. In this class, I introduce the technique of Free Write, discuss the benefits, and provide tips and tricks for an excellent Free Write practice including an invitation to write outdoors.

This course will be great for writers of poetry to writers of emails and everyone in between. Since most of us have to spend energy composing some kind of written work, this practice can benefit pretty much anyone. Plus, it is an effective way of relieving anxiety and working through emotional blocks. So even if you don't consider yourself a writer or an artist, a Free Write practice can help you too. 

What is free writing?

Free Write is a writing practice in which a person sets a time limit and challenges themselves to write without stopping, pen to page, for the specified amount of time. Developing a regular Free Write practice will...

  • provide access to creative energy
  • relieve stress and promote mental clarity
  • strengthen a writer's voice 
  • dissolve emotional blocks
  • lead to deeper more meaningful thinking and better ideas
  • promote heightened awareness and knowledge of self

At first I wasn't sure about the lenght of this course. But it really shows you everthing you need to know. And the realtime imersive exercise was so good. You don't have the feeling of doing it alone
This class is a short one. I sketchnoted this class for another one. Soon I will be taking a trip to the beach and implementing what I have learned.
I really enjoyed this short class. The idea is so simple. This is just what I needed to help me get back on track. Thank you.
