Understanding Your Inner Editor with Julia Rios 

Some additional room has been made available for this event! Register here to join the session.

Some writers plan things out well in advance and others write things down in an unplanned rush. Regardless, most of us have an inner editor—the critical voice that tells you you’re doing something wrong. How do you quiet it down when it’s overzealous? When and how can it help to listen to your inner editor? This workshop will go over some tools for helping your wildly creative side coexist in peace with your orderly and critical side, and for understanding how (and when) to polish your words.

Saturday, July 25, from 3:00-5:00 PM PDT
120 minutes
