Empowerment Through Creativity at Women’s Network
Rockland — The Midcoast Chapter of Maine Women’s Network will host writer, teacher, communicator and storyteller Kathrin Seitz Wednesday, Jan. 15, from 5:15 to 7:30 p.m. at The Speakeasy (under The Chowder House), 2 Park St. The event is sponsored by member Rhonda Nordstrom of Rheal Day Spa in Rockland.
In his book “On Writing,” Stephen Kings advises, “Don’t be a muggle, stick out your chin, write so people believe you.” Seitz will discuss what it means to stick out one’s chin and write so people believe by learning how to discover the tone, rhythm and dynamic of one’s own, unique voice. She will talk about how, by learning to tell one’s own story in one’s own voice comfortably, one can gain in self-esteem and confidence and make his or her business and personal communications more authentic.
Seitz spent more than 40 years in the entertainment business, where she oversaw the production of books, television movies, feature films and animated series. During that time, she evaluated and selected projects to develop and release to the marketplace; in doing so, she gained a keen sense of what works and what doesn’t work. While in Hollywood, Seitz studied Method Writing with Jack Grapes and developed a practice teaching Method Writing in New York City, Florida, Newport Rhode Island and Midcoast Maine. She is pursuing an MFA in Fiction at Spaulding University and continues to teach and work with private clients.
Cost, which includes full buffet and dessert following Seitz’s Empowerment Through Creativity presentation, time for networking and the activities, is $25 for MWN members, $30 for guests of members and/or non-members. Guests and non-members are always welcome. Online preregistration for members, guests and non-members is required by Friday, Jan. 10.
