Learn how to 'turn down the volume' on your inner critic and get creative!

A supported ‘self-help pep-talk’ session to help writers (or those too scared to call themselves a writer) overcome self-doubt and the mental roadblocks to putting pen to paper.

The session will cover common creative mental roadblocks that get in the way of creativity, with supported activities to help participants stock up their self-doubt toolkits and get creating.

Claire is a writer living on Wadawurrung land, Geelong. She is the author of two novels published by Pan Macmillan: The Book of Ordinary People (2018) and The Bit In Between (2015). Her fiction and non-fiction work has appeared in many places, including Going Down Swinging, Overland, The Big Issue, Kill Your Darlings and a number of collections.
