Group Writing Exploration of Noordhollands Duinreservaat:


We will meet at Castricum train station and walk west, through the lovely Castricum Bos. We will be stopping for writing exercises and group discussions around the theme of Immersion and Creativity in Nature. Our exploration will bring us to the beach of the North Sea and then back to Castricum Station.

Participants must be able-bodied to walk a total area of about 10k (6miles). The hike is very easy, and we will take frequent breaks, including for lunch.

The hike and exercises will be facilitated by Hannah Behrens, an experienced writing teacher. The cost is 25 Euros. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to Castricum Station. The meeting point will be in front of Castricum Station between 10:30 and 11:00. We will be heading toward the forest promptly at 11:15, so please arrive on time, with the following items:

Water
Personal lunch or snacks
Rain gear and good walking shoes
Writing journal and pen/pencil
Park entrance fee 1.80 for a day pass

We plan to return to Castricum Station by 4:00 pm. All are welcome to stay an extra hour for complimentary a coffee or tea at Bij de Buurvrouw cafe, located across from the train station.

Skills for Creative Productivity- Saturday Course in Castricum

REGISTER HERE

You know you have the artistic skills and talent to create wonderful art or finish that book manuscript, but there is still something holding you back from making huge strides towards your creative goals. 

Most artistically minded individuals have experienced one or more of the many pitfalls that keep us from staying on course to make the most of our creativity.

Procrastination, overwhelm, overcommitment, idea overload, imposter syndrome, low self-esteem, criticism, scattered focus, internal and external stresses, fear of failure and even fear of success can keep us stuck in our tracks, delay our goals and divert our future.

In This Live 4-Hour course will help you discover:

·      How to get to the bottom of your procrastination and other pitfalls of creative work.

·      Management strategies for effective creative work time.

·      Tips to get yourself back on track when you have been on long hiatus or are in a slump.

·      How to armor yourself with confidence, artistic allies and other resources so you don’t get lost in isolation or avoidance.

The class includes a course outline, live teaching with writing coach, Hannah Behrens, reading recommendations, and one 30 minute follow up session with individual coaching.
