New year, new writing intentions. The year ahead is a blank page of possibiltity and, as writers, we know how daunting a blank page can be. Join us for this 2021 kick-off event as we discuss writing goals and intentions, how we approach fresh starts (or restarts), seasonal opportunities and deadlines to keep in mind as you map out the calendar year, tips for keeping the momentum going, and lots more.
