Join MK Chavez for a quick and dirty dive into literary coaching.


This is a highly interactive workshop where attendees will explore their personal quicksand, engage in a writing values clarification exercise, and leave with a toolkit for addressing writer’s block, book inertia, and other writing crises while they build a sustainable writing practice.


Open to all genres and levels of experience. Everyone is welcome.
