FWA St. Pete Meeting May 14th with Velva Lee Harety

May FWA St. Pete Meeting

For our upcoming meeting on Thursday, May 14th, author and Jungian depth psychotherapist Velva Lee Harety will be speaking. As usual, we meet at the Main Branch St. Pete Library at 6 PM. Networking begins at 5:30 PM. This meeting is always open to the public.

Topic: Getting Your Writing Game On

Writing a book and bringing it to market takes heart and guts. The obstacles and set-backs can be challenging.  Even more challenging can be your Internal Saboteur creating what the Irish call “a rat in the skull”, i.e. doubt. What to do? What to do?

This intriguing presentation by Velva Lee Heraty MSW, author and Jungian depth psychotherapist, will be an open forum for questions and concerns about how best to resist the negative vibes, stay on track, and trust yourself to do the next right thing for your Inner Author.
