Level Up as a Writer

rendyhenderson_webWhat will help you reach the next level as a writer? What is that thing you can’t quite put your finger on that would take your stories to the next level? Author Randy Henderson will walk through the stages he sees most writers grow through, from beginning writer to published pro, and the common challenges and lessons found at each stage. The workshop will include handouts and a number of exercises.  No matter where you are at in your writer’s journey, the goal is for you to walk away with a clear idea of what you can do to “level up” as a writer.
