Here's What We Do at Composed
Bust Through Writing Barriers We help you figure out what's getting in the way and how to move past it. You'll finally understand why writing is so anxiety provoking (hint: it's not you) and what you can do to make it easier, more productive, and more pleasurable.
Boost Focus and Motivation We'll help you create a protected time and place for your writing, one that's perfectly suited to your life, your writing process, and your particular vision of a worthwhile life of the mind.
Make Writing Effective & Efficient Gone are the days when you flail around, wasting or entirely avoiding the minimal writing time you have. We'll draw from best-practices to design a custom-tailored writing process that's simple, powerful and productive.
Build Calm & Confidence No more working yourself into the ground and then feeling too guilty to take the weekend off. You'll cultivate a clear and undeniable sense of satisfaction in a job well done, so you can feel good about your work and your self.
Set Rock Solid Writing Habits What's the use of showing up at your writing desk everyday if you don't know what to do once you're there? Once you've uncovered your unique writing process, you'll use it as the foundation for a writing practice turns you into the scholar you always knew you could be. All this, with support and camaraderie at the Composed Writing Retreat.
