Writer's block? Take a hike

Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Join Cora J. Duffy in exploring writer’s block and how to beat it — naturally — from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, June 19, at the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow, 515 Spring St. in Eureka Springs.

After identifying three common root causes of writer’s block, writers will walk to the nearby park and springs to explore how engaging with nature can help them overcome these challenges.

In guided writing activities, participants will learn to “Take Your Character on a Walk” and how to encourage themselves to return to nature and reinvigorate their writing in the figure.

Duffy is a screenwriter, poet and essayist whose writing often explores place and one’s connection to or longing for a particular place.

She is the recipient of the 2018 Moondancer Fellowship and during her residency, she will continue working on her feature-length screenplay, “White-haired Goldenrod.”

Book your spot by calling 479-253-7444 or email director@writerscolony.org. The fee is $20 and space is limited. For more information, visit https//www.writerscolony.org/workshops and www.corajduffy.com.
