Fearless Writing with William Kenower

November 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

If you love to write and have a story you want to tell, then the only thing that can stand between you and the success you’re seeking isn’t craft, or a good agent, or enough Facebook friends and Twitter followers, but fear. Fear that you aren’t good enough, or the market is too crowded, or no one wants to hear from you.

If you’ve felt this fear before, join us on November 7th from 6:30-8:30PM at the Old Church to hear from author William Kenower on FEARLESS WRITING. Kenower will offer tools to help you connect with your inherent, fearless creativity. He’ll show you the path to Fearless Writing.
