From Corey:

Almost all writers fight a battle against the blank page.  One of the main differences that separates successful writers from amateurs is knowing how to win this fight.

 It’s not just about forcing yourself to write, but knowing how to write to the best of your abilities, free of the internal censor and other creative blocks.

Over the past ten years I’ve had the honor of working closely with many successful writers and seen the specific tools and strategies they use to overcome resistance and sit down every day to produce professional-level work. While some of these techniques are found in books and seminars, many are not. 

In this 3-hour Master Class I will share proven approaches for conquering self-doubt, procrastination, fear, anxiety, self-sabotage and perfectionism. It is designed for writers who don’t want yet another pep talk, but actual tools and techniques to make writing easier, more productive and impactful to the reader.  

Topics Include:

Sanctuary Writing

Critic Blocking

The Five Stages of Writer Motivation


The Fire Truck Strategy

The Kurosawa Approach

Growth Mindset

The Flashlight Draft

Break the Damn Glass

The Tomato Draft


Who Should Attend:

Writers of all stripes--screenwriters, TV writers, novelists, playwrights, poets, journalists, bloggers, essayists--who want practical help in conquering blocks and self-destructive tendencies. Because writing doesn’t have to be such a struggle.  You are actually allowed to enjoy it.

The Writers Junction

The Writers Junction is an affordable shared workspace for writers. It’s where writers write.  It’s where you’ll find the quiet of a library, the society of a coffee shop, the focus of a daily office, and the camaraderie of a private club. It’s where you can work in splendid isolation, within a supportive community.
