2015 October Inspiration for Writers Workshop


Attendees shared an afternoon with the affable Kendra Levin, a Senior Editor at Viking Books and a certified life coach for writers and artists (kendralevin.com). She opened the afternoon by discussing writing with intention and connecting with the ideal reader. To boil it down, successful authors "create for an audience of one" (Kurt Vonnegut). The exercise involved thinking of a character, being specific in the details and writing something for that character.

Attendees learned what their monster was that kept them from reaching their writing goals and also, what their character wanted to tell them after a meditation exercise.

Kendra finished the workshop with a discussion on goals. The final exercise was a schematic drawing depicting how to achieve your writing goals and record your progress. 

Thank you, Kendra, and our attendees for a wonderful afternoon!

"Thank you for all your hard work in pulling yesterday’s event together. It was inspiring having an afternoon to discuss the process and learn about better ways to work. Thank you. Your time was well appreciated." Frances Hollowell Ryan, 2015 attendee.

"I enjoyed the workshop with Kendra last Saturday--not only her, but the input from the participants, and the way the workshop was organized. Nice job to all who made it happen." Rachel, 2015 attendee.
