Do you feel disheartened by rejections and struggle to get your work out to the right places? Yes, sure, the industry is tough and to find the right competition, agent or publisher may take some time. But what if you are accidentally blocking yourself by sending your work out to places which are not the ‘right match’? Or maybe, just maybe, you are too scared of success, so deep down you’d rather they didn’t notice you? Come to this workshop to heal your inner saboteurs. You may not be able to control the external circumstances. You can, however, learn how to get out of your own way.
