Two Bad Pages

November 8, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Do you find yourself doing absolutely anything but writing? Fiona Melrose started a revolution last year with her social media hashtag #2badpagesaday. In this session that she has designed just for Being A Writer, we explore how as writers we can make the time to commit to the two pillars of writing craft: dedication (turning up) and devotion (honouring your gift) by re-imagining our writing practice, and moving forwards with confidence and joy through learning how to grant ourselves permission to write badly. We welcome you to join us in this inspiring and practical session, so that you can reconnect with the joy of writing, and get over the line with your writing projects.
