Writing isn’t a solo effort. Tools help you harness your creative energy and channel that power. If you’re reading this, you’re already aware of the keyboard, a ubiquitous writing tool. But how many writing tools do you use? Do you only need one hand to count them? Two? It’s probably time you considered adding a few more to the toolbox.
In this single-session, the Chicago Review of Books Executive Editor, Todd Van Luling, will highlight unexpected physical and digital tools to enhance the quality of your writing. A few of these tools will make your actual writing better in seconds, like magic (think spell-check, but on steroids). Others will help you keep on keeping on as a writer in this strange time (a cheap, near indestructible plant on your desk can do wonders).
Attendees will come away with actual tools to incorporate into their daily writing routine, as well as more conceptual lessons to adopt and make their own.
The class will include a discussion of the tools as well as a Q&A about the session and the CHIRB in general. Fiction and nonfiction writers at any level are welcome.
Proceeds from this class will go to support the Chicago Review of Books contributors.
