Most people, if not all, are afraid of failure, of family, of the events of their past. And for writers, the truth is, what we fear most is often exactly what we need to put on paper. Through prompts, readings, and discussions, author Dana De Greff will guide you to name, release, and use your fears to generate ideas for new work.
