In this free program, we will start with the bases of writing. Each week, there will be a mini-workshop and each month a more substantial workshop. What are workshops? They are writing exercises in which you can participate by commenting on the post or by sending your text by email. You will receive constructive feedback on your compositions. The most important task to become a writer is to continuously write and by participating to our workshops, you will install a work pace.
CREATING A STRATEGY
Everyone has their own method for achieving their goals in creative writing. That is why you will be the one to create your own strategy. By following our tips, you should be able to identify your strengths and weaknesses and how you need to proceed depending on your project. Don’t worry, you are not alone in this. Not only will you see different examples of strategies that may suit your needs, but you can always write us for help, comments or general encouragement. We are here for you because we love to help!
Maybe you already have a plan. Maybe your difficulty resides in the ideas. If it’s the case, the inspiring section is for you. We publish amazing artists, facts and images to stimulate your imagination. We can guarantee that you will pass from no ideas to too many ideas. But we will help you choose wisely in our tips.
PREPARING YOUR LONG-TERM PROJECT
All this preparation, from workshops to daily inspirations, is for your long-term project. After developing the habit of writing, of being commented on, of reworking your texts, you will be ready for your long-term project. And the best way to succeed on finishing your project is to be stimulated! Our writing challenges are here to stimulate you with deadlines and the possibility to be read and commented by our readers!
