Writing workshop

The Hudson Valley Writers Guild is presenting a one-day workshop, Block Busting: How to Break Through the Barriers that Keep You from Writing, to be held Saturday June 4, from 1:00PM to 4:00PM, at the East Greenbush Community Library, 10 Community Way, East Greenbush, NY.  The workshop will be led by novelist and poet Julie Lomoe, and is free; see below for information about pre-registration.

Writer’s block afflicts every author sooner or later. If you’ve ever found yourself paralyzed, staring at an empty piece of paper or a blank computer screen, you know the feelings of frustration and even downright panic that can keep you from writing. In this workshop for writers or would-be writers of all levels, we’ll explore the underlying feelings behind your personal blocks and learn a variety of techniques to help you overcome the barriers that keep you from reaching your fullest potential as a writer.

This workshop will use creative visualization and writing exercises along with a discussion of successful writers’ tips and techniques for overcoming creative blocks. Free handouts will include a tip sheet and bibliography.

Julie Lomoe is a novelist and poet with over three decades of experience as a creative arts therapist and workshop leader.  She has published three novels. Mood Swing: The Bipolar Murders, Eldercide and her most recent, Hope Dawns Eternal that is her first venture into paranormal fantasy fiction and the first of a series featuring the vampire and soap opera star Jonah McQuarry
