erika schickel memoir Having trouble getting your derrière in the chair, battling a vicious inner critic or compulsively reorganizing your fridge to avoid the blank page? If so, you’ve got a resistance problem. Fortunately, we’ve recruited stellar author and essayist Erika Schickel to help you debunk your literary funk. She’ll give you concrete tools for organizing your time and reframing your relationship to your writing life. Erika will also help you craft a daily writing routine, build support/accountability networks and put daily resistance in its place so you can show up to the page.

Class size is limited to provide a personal and supportive environment for all participants. This class is applicable to anyone writing in any genre: blog, essay, memoir, nonfiction, novel, poetry, essay, screenplay or TV pilot. Crippling perfectionism not welcome.
