About the Workshop
What to do when you feel like a failure:
- Competition, comparison, rejections and other knock-backs all too often feel like inescapable parts of being a writer, and can drain our resilience and confidence. In this session we'll explore strategies for moving through and queering failure, and develop our understandings of the things that most help our resilience and writing.
- Looking at six categories of failure, identifying which ones we have the most experience with, the ones we find the scariest and the ones we're confident at moving through, and exploring how to apply this understanding the next time we 'fail'.
- We'll look at the idea of queering failure, and how cultivating acceptance and even celebration of failure can help you be bolder and more unapologetic in your writing
- Using the 'Human Givens' model of emotional needs, we'll explore what you most need in these vulnerable moments, and how you can plan around that to be as self-compassionate and resilient as possible next time 'failure' strikes
Who the workshop for?
All writers at any level.
