Detroit Workshop: The “humiliating miserable thing” called writing

For those of you near Detroit, hop over to 826michigan’s “How to Write Like I Do” workshop on June 20. Jason Porter will present “Necessary Contradictions: Hating the Thing We Love to Do While Loving the Thing We Hate to Do.”

“Being successful as a writer demands the necessary contradiction that we are our harshest critic while simultaneously being our biggest fan. In this workshop we will honor above all else any and all tactics that return us to the writing process. Harmless tricks. Arbitrary goals. Writing with a pen. Closing our eyes. Unplugging routers. We will do whatever it takes to get us back to doing that excruciating humiliating miserable thing we can’t seem to get enough of: writing.”

Get all the details here. Proceeds benefit 826michigan’s creative writing programs for students in Detroit’s schools, libraries, and community centers.
