London Lit Lab Live Online: Managing the Inner Critic with Michael Loveday
Sat 18 May 2024 to Sat 18 May 2024
Release your creative power by understanding your inner critic. Learn to manage and quieten the internal voice that puts resistance and self-doubt in the way of your creativity.

This workshop taught by Michael Loveday will help you release your creative power by developing a better understanding of your inner critic – the (sometimes loud!) internal voice that creates resistance, friction and self-doubt within us, blocking pure creativity.

In this workshop, you will –

find out more about the unique qualities of your own inner critic
learn to negotiate with this obstructive internal voice
learn tactics for taming it
direct yourself towards flourishing fully as a creative individual.

This workshop will suit writers, artists, and creative practitioners of all kinds who want to grapple with any self-defeating obstructions in the way of their creativity.

Michael Loveday works with writers, artists and creative practitioners/freelancers as a coach and editor, and is a Visiting Lecturer at Bath Spa University. He trained as a Creativity Coach with the Creativity Coaching Association and with Eric Maisel, one of the pioneers and founders of creativity coaching. His writing craft guide Unlocking the Novella-in-Flash: from Blank Page to Finished Manuscript (Ad Hoc Fiction, 2022) won an Arts Council England Award, a Best Indie Book Award for Non-Fiction, and the 2024 Independent Press Award for Writing and Publishing. His latest publication is the short-short story collection Do What the Boss Says: Stories of Family and Childhood (Bamboo Dart Press, 2022).

Date: 18th May 2024, 3pm-5:30pm (British Summer Time / UTC+1) Morning session for American participants.

Cost: £40 (Half-price places available on application for writers from any community that is marginalised or under-represented in publishing.)
