Central VA Write-In

Jan 02, 2024

1 event

Online event

Unlimited seats

Join Chris Bailey for a monthly co-working virtual social for members living in Central Virginia on the first Tuesday of the month at 1:00 pm. Participants will chat and share their writing or illustrating goals for the day and then do two 30 min timed work sprints, checking in with the group in between work sessions. It’s a great way to meet other creatives living in your area and get some writing or illustrating done, too. Writing doesn’t have to always be solitary! For members only. The session is free. Please register below. If you have any questions, please reach out to Chris. ** A link to attend this zoom social will be emailed to the group on the morning of the meeting.

Kick off the new year with a January write-in/draw-in with author/illustrator Katie Erickson. Are you an illustrator or author who fears the blank page? In this interactive presentation, Katie will share a few different tactics to get over that hump and find your way gently into the “flow." Then, there will be time for writing and/or illustrating for the rest of the evening session. We hope everyone will leave inspired and ready to conquer that page.
