Once More Unto The Blank Page: Curing Writer's Block

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Whether you’re plagued by writer’s block, self-doubt, or a busy schedule—other writers have been there, too. Sometimes it’s best to get out of your own head and let someone else take a crack at the writing problems that are keeping you down. Clear the cobwebs, get fresh eyes on your story, or collaborate with a like-minded writer at a WattCon-sized activation designed to get you inspired and writing again. Speed-dating style, writers will make their way from person to person, quickly explaining what has them hung up in their current story. The writer they’re paired with will try to alleviate their writer’s block with suggestions and feedback.
Participants will also get - for the first time ever - the chance to chat with Zo, a social AI by Microsoft, to help provide inspiration for their next Wattpad story
