Class Blurb:

At some point, almost all writers suffer from the inability to tell
The story they want. Part of writer's block is a lack of joy in the
Process. So counselor Laurie Schnebly Campbell looks at the causes --
Including exhaustion, boredom and fear of success -- and the benefits
Of this block. Writers take home new awareness of what works for them
And renewed inspiration for returning to the craft they love.

Registration Period:

Opens August 26, 2013

Registration Deadline: Sept 9, 2013

Workshop fee: $15

About the instructor:

Laurie Schnebly Campbell loves giving workshops for writer groups about "Psychology for Creating Characters," "Making Rejection WORK For You," "Building A Happy Relationship For Your Characters (And Yourself)" and other issues that draw on her background as a counseling therapist and romance writer.

In fact, she chose her website (www.BookLaurie.com) so people would find it easy to Book Laurie for programs.

But giving workshops -- for students from London and Los Angeles to New Zealand and New York -- is just one of her interests. During weekdays, she writes and produces videos, brochures and commercials (some of which feature her voice) for a Phoenix advertising agency. For several years she would turn off her computer every day at five o'clock, wait thirty seconds, turn it on again and start writing romance.

It finally paid off. Her first novel was nominated by Romantic Times as the year's "Best First Series Romance," and her second beat out Nora Roberts for "Best Special Edition of the Year." But between those two successes came a three-year dry spell, during which Laurie discovered that selling a first book doesn't guarantee ongoing success.
