As creators we want to own our craft so that we may succeed with our literary goals. Sometimes the path is less than clear, or we struggle with setting our intentions and reaching our goals. Join me, Sonya Julie, on November 10, 2018 at the Detroit Working Writers (DWW) Annual Conference to learn about the power of creating a vision board to carry forward your intentions into manifestation. Publishing a book, landing a literary agent, developing a novel, or finishing a creative writing course are just a few of many goals that writers may have.
This effective practice can help bring your literary goals, creative dreams, and educational pursuits into reality. In this workshop you will learn what a vision board (or book) is and how to create one. Get fun and creative tips, techniques and tools to effectively reinforce the best possible outcome for your vision journey. Participants will learn more about vision boards and what factors to consider when creating them, the power of intent, tools for manifestation, recognizing guidance, and creative ideas for implementation.
Many successful people have used vision boards including famous athletes, actors, writers, and business leaders. “Your brain will work tirelessly to achieve the statements you give your subconscious mind, And when those statements are the affirmations and images of your goals, you are destined to achieve them” says Jack Canfield. While the workshop is geared towards writing, the information, ideas, and techniques can be applied to any situation in life.
The Detroit Working Writers conference will be held at the Michigan State University (MSU) Management Center in Troy, Michigan. The theme is Owning Your Craft and other topics will include marketing, publishing, editors, revision, memoir, mystery, poetry, adventurous fiction, and creative nonfiction. Visit the Detroit Working Writers website for more details.
On June 5, 1900, thirteen professional women journalists and literary writers established the Detroit Press Club, the first organization of its kind in the city. From 1914 to 1966, the group was known as the Detroit Women Writer’s Club, and from 1966 to 2004, as Detroit Women Writers. Today known as Detroit Working Writers, members are both men and women writing and publishing in a variety of genres and through traditional and non-traditional media.
DWW fosters excellence in writing and serves as a creative workshop for members, helping them improve their work, support other writers and continue to excel and publish. Within the organization, this mission is met through providing valuable networking opportunities, mutual support and special events for our members and the writing community at large. Members promote and support creative writing by serving as role models, mentors, teachers, and speakers.
