A workshop to unleash your creativity
Want to write? Searching for inspiration? Keep meaning to start that project? Don’t Just Sit There! The creative spark is everywhere… waiting for you!

Don’t Just Sit There! is a fun and fast-paced immersion in writing and creative discussion. Truthfully, you already know in your heart of hearts what inspires you; this workshop will allow you to access that personal inspiration and show you how to continue to believe in yourself and keep writing. Don’t Just Sit There! is for those who have a great idea simmering or simply want to spark fresh creativity.
