We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

Eric Maisel’s Deep Writing workshops are renowned for their simple structure and powerful effect.

During the workshop, we learn—or relearn—how much writing means to us, and make real progress on our chosen project. A genuinely safe environment is created because our writing is neither shared nor critiqued. Rather, we spend time connecting with, and falling back in love with, our own writing.

Each writing session begins with an important lesson for us to consider. We also explore the unique challenges that writers face and have the opportunity to resolve long-standing issues around committing, planning, and doing; achieving a centered presence; mastering anxiety; and maintaining the writing life.

This Deep Writing Workshop is ideal for writers of every level of experience, from published authors to writers who have yet to begin. It is likewise ideal for writers hoping to get back to a beloved project and those who are immersed in a current project. There is also the opportunity to speak informally with Maisel about writing or publishing questions.
