How to Conquer Writer’s Block, Ego Need, Envy and the Other Evil Voices Inside You with Steve Almond

Steve Almond will talk about his new book, Truth Is the Arrow, Mercy Is the Bow, and the emotional struggles that we bring to our writing: everything from the anxiety of exposure to the crippling doubts that drive us into writer’s block. No question is off limits: Can I tell the truth about my abusive parent? Is it wrong to be jealous of a famous friend? What if I’m just not good enough? We’ll focus on a radical question: Is it possible to view moments, and even eras, of creative doubt as necessary and even essential to our artistic growth? How can we move from anxiety and self-loathing to a posture or forgiveness and curiosity? A session for anyone who’s ever struggled to get going—and keep going—at the keyboard.
