[Workshop] Writing our way through the inner critic

Anyone who writes or who wants to write may well encounter the Inner Critic. Its voice fuels writer’s block, telling us that we’re not good enough to write, not clever enough, boring or simply wrong.

This workshop will offer a gentle exploration of the Inner Critic’s character and motivation. We’ll develop curiosity as an antidote to the stuckness it creates, and discover how the Critic can become an ally rather than an enemy. All levels of writing experience are welcome. Bring pen and paper.

River Wolton is a poet and writing facilitator who works extensively in schools and community projects. She won first prize in the Red Pepper Poetry Competition 2004 and has recent poems published in Mslexia, Staple, Chroma and Magma. “Critic Tango: A Workshop on the Inner Critic” was published in Writing Works (ed. Bolton, Field, Thompson, 2006). She is currently working on a book about the Inner Critic.
