As a seasoned teacher of writers of all ages, Deb's presentations are not only packed with information, but also with inspiring, interactive, creative approaches, making each workshop unique and meaningful—because they're designed with your participants in mind!
Experiencing highs and lows as creators is universal. But dealing with it alone, we don’t always see that the stories we most need to revise may be the ones we tell ourselves. We judge others from the outside and ourselves from the inside. Deep dive into the effects of habits, patterns, and inner dialogs to clarify your directions, align your actions, and reclaim your creativity for greater joy, meaning, and success.
Learn from the masters! We’ll explore and play with formats, voice, characters, plots, and themes of picture books. When every word counts, what do you cut? When should you rhyme? How do you revise? Bring your questions and your favorite picture books for this inspiring, quick-paced time to play!
This one is a long-time library favorite!
Writers are magicians. We pull rabbits out of hats, heroes from certain death, and stories out of thin air. Amaze yourself as new ideas and manuscripts appear or works-in-progress transform before your very eyes. Learn “tricks” to add tension in your manuscripts and “tips” to reduce the tension in your writing life.
Magic wands included when in person!
