Writer’s Block Workshop 
Isa Chandra Moskowitz
Bring your pens, your paper, and your courage, it’s time to get down and dirty…it’s time to get writing! This hands-on workshop focuses on getting over writer’s block, and transforming your thoughts into written words. Using food as our focus, we’ll perform several writing exercises to compose fully realized pieces of writing. To attend this workshop, you’ll have to be open to sharing what you write out loud, discussing the rest of the group’s written pieces, and listening to feedback about your own pieces. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and hopefully you’ll gain insight and skills that last you a lifetime.

Location: Astoria 
Capacity: 15

    I am so upset over both the Photography & Writer’s Block workshops, being filled! I am spending a small fortune to fly myself out to this event, and I consider these 2 workshops in particular, to be among the main reasons I made the decision to take on the debt it will cost me to make this trip. Considering the fact that the event is being held at such a large conference center on the campus of a major university, is there not some way to hold each of these 2 workshops in a room which may accommodate more people?? Please answer as soon as possible as I am afraid that my inability to attend these 2 particular workshops, may affect my decision to come to the conference. So sorry! Thanks so much, Kerry Christine Hubert
