Wed July 30th Amanda Owen The Power of Receiving: A Revolutionary Approach to Creativity, Writing, and Publishing Creativity thrives in a receptive environment. That’s why people attend writing retreats, write behind closed doors, or seek out environments that are free from distractions. Whether you want to connect with your muse, an agent, a publisher, or an audience, increasing your receiving skills will help you. In this talk, Amanda shows how tapping into the receptive world eliminates writer’s block, connects you to your brilliance, gives you energy and ideas, and leads you to the people who will help you get your writing out into the world.
Amanda Owen is the author of The Power of Receiving: A Revolutionary Approach to Giving Yourself the Life You Want and Deserve (Tarcher/Penguin 2011) and Born to Receive: 7 Powerful Steps Women Can Take Today to Reclaim Their Half of the Universe (Tarcher/Penguin, 2014). www.amandaowen.com
