Have you ever gotten stuck while trying to write? Is there a reason for “writer’s
block”—or a cure? Bill Sullivan believes there is. Bring a pen and pad to this
workshop because you’ll take part in writing exercises to beat writer’s block,
discuss the results, and decide what to do next. Learn:

1. “Burst exercises” to break through resistance
2. How to use memories and outdoor experiences to enrich your writing
3. How to make your writing and your confidence soar

William L. Sullivan is one of Oregon’s bestselling authors. The Eugene writer is
best known for his hiking guidebooks—and yes, he has hiked every trail he could
find in the state—but he has also written four novels, three books on Oregon
travel and adventure, two books on Oregon history, and two adventure memoirs.
Bill gives dozens of slide shows each year appearing at book signing events, and
leads writing workshops.
