About This Workshop

Good self-care is the new multi-vitamin! Writers should definitely take a multi-vitamin, and Writer Wellness is a complimentary plan to help you stay on target for writing and life. WW is a lifestyle technique for anyone who loves to create with activities to stimulate creativity and health by encouraging regular journal writing, exercise, relaxation, sound nutrition, and creative play. Regardless of style, genre, or writing goals, Writer Wellness is the perfect writer's companion.    

The workshop will offer three activities per key area (journaling, exercise, relaxation, nutrition, and creative play) for participant's to try then respond to discussion prompts posted in the course. This interactive workshop will present ideas any writer can put into practice, tweak, and maintain throughout a writing career with the goal of better health and expanded creativity for many years. Discover the Writer Wellness Warrior in you and be well, write well!
