Fearless Writing's Greatest Hits

Description: Don't miss Fearless Writing’s Greatest Hits: a 2-Hour Mini-Workshop with Crescent Dragonwagon. Find your voice. Find your juice. Cozy up to your fears and get rock-solid about how to use them. Get jazzed and energized even in uncertain times. Write, and surprise yourself doing it.
That’s what happens in the effective, exhilarating workshop that has helped hundreds of people move from "I've always wanted to write, but..." to action. It’s Fearless Writing, taught around the world by Crescent Dragonwagon, (an award-winning Westminster West-based author who has published extensively in five different genres).

You can have a taste of it, when Friends of the Library presents a short version of the renowned breakthrough writing workshop as a fundraiser for a suggested sliding-scale donation of $20-$125. (A typical Fearless Weekend goes for $995 per person).
“It takes a weekend to do the whole enchilada,” says Dragonwagon, who also teaches a month-long online version, Virtual Fearless. “But over the years of working with student-colleagues, I’ve seen what are the greatest hits for many. I’ll try, in these two hours, to do what sugarers do with maple sap: boil it down, concentrate it.” So expect steam to be issuing from the Rockingham Library on Thursday night.

Please bring a laptop and/or spiral notebook, along with a couple of your favorite pens; we’ll move back and forth between interactive discussion and writing practices. The workshop, which uses the anxiety generated by chaotic conditions as a powerful creative force, is practical, effective, creative, serious and playful. It turns apparent obstacles into the material: for writing, but from which to build a thriving and resilient life.

“Libraries give readers, and writers, so much,” says Dragonwagon. “To be able to have access to almost all the accumulated knowledge and entertainment in the world, for free, right where you live, is an astonishing thing. I am delighted to offer this on behalf of the Rockingham Library. And because writing also gives the person doing it so much --- people always say to me, ‘It’s not just fearless writing, it’s fearless living’ --- I am delighted to be able to offer at least a sampling of the workshop right here at home.”
