Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this is the first year the festival will be virtual. There are tons of authors speaking from November 5-21 so make sure to check the schedule to find some great events to attend.
My Fear & Writing workshop will be on Saturday, November 14, from 2:00 – 4:00 PM Pacific Time.
Here’s some of the feedback I received when I taught Fear & Writing for Literary Arts (the fine folks behind the Portland Book Festival, Portland Arts & Lectures and more) in June.
Peg was a great teacher. She had experienced the fear of writing so was able to talk about from a place of having worked through it. She was able to give good suggestions. She shared her love of writing and was very encouraging!
Peg Cheng was an excellent instructor. A good balance of honest, helpful instruction, along with writing prompts that really helped me to tap into my fears and find myself enjoying putting pen to paper again.
The topic, Fear and Writing, felt extremely relevant personally. I am grateful to the instructor for sharing her experience and lessons so generously. I find myself utilizing her suggestions daily!
Great class and I continued the inquiry into what makes me afraid of my own writing and came up with additional stops. I think this is a really important subject for writers, suggest offering it regularly.
Your courses are a gift during this extraordinary time, keeping me connected to others and helping me stay engaged in my writing practice while at home alone. Peg Cheng’s organized approach–pulling in feedback in the chat section, keeping us active in the moment with meditation and prompt writing, inviting us to share–all of it made the experience valuable to me. I am so grateful to her and to Literary Arts!
Peg was an excellent and engaging instructor–I was very impressed with the class and would take another with her in the future!
