Cure for the Common Writer's Block

  • Schuler Books & Music 2820 Towne Center Circle Lansing, MI 48912 United States (map)


Cure for the Common Writer's Block - Sick of staring at a blank computer screen? Stuck at a tricky point in your book? Paralyzed by seeing too many different paths your story could take? It's time for you to take back control of your process and your story! In this workshop, you'll learn lots of great techniques to bust through writer's block and get on with the business of writing your book.

ERIN BARTELS is a copywriter and freelance editor by day, a novelist by night, and a wife, mother, seamstress, painter, poet, and photographer in between. Her latest novel manuscript was a finalist for the 2015 Rising Star Award from the Women’s Fiction Writers Association, and her short story “This Elegant Ruin” was a finalist in The Saturday Evening Post 2014 Great American Fiction Contest. She has written several other short stories and is the author of The Intentional Writer. Erin is represented by Nephele Tempest of The Knight Agency. Her debut novel is currently out on submission, a fact she tries to ignore by keeping busy writing the next thing on her unending list of story ideas. Find her at, on Facebook, or on Twitter @ErinLBartels.
