About this Event

The pandemic was tough and, for many, it brought with the collapse of events and subsequent lockdowns something we'd never experienced at this level: the death of momentum. Unfortunately, that's still going on. In this talk, we'll look at a few writing exercises to get back on track as well as ways to use your social media platform to get the words flowing.
