About this event

What will be covered in this workshop?

This workshop will explore the intersection of our mental health and writing. This will include universal challenges in writing, maintaining good writing practices, managing well-being and self-care, as well as challenges around negative thinking, procrastination and writers’ guilt.

We will discuss cognitive distortions around writing, writing expectations, writing goals, mindfulness and healthier writing habits. This will include several exercises to identify and shift negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors around writing and to create more positive ones. We will address productivity, procrastination and guilt, and specific strategies for managing these.We will balance productivity with an acceptance of individual working styles and individual goals. Please note We can discuss individual challenges more broadly but this is not a therapeutic space.
