“The Organised Writer”: Talk & Q&A with author Antony Johnston

8 October @ 18:30 - 20:00

Nottingham Writers’ Studio is incredibly excited to welcome best-selling author Antony Johnston to the Studio for an online talk and Q&A about his latest book release, “The Organised Writer: How to stay on top of all your projects and never miss a deadline”. This is a practical and no-nonsense guide aimed specifically at writers, to help them transform their structure and routine, and allow more time for doing what they love best – writing.

Antony is a prolific writer, working simultaneously in many different media. Over the past twenty years, as he’s moved from one medium to another and become busier by the day, he’s developed a system that allows him to write multiple projects at once — giving each one the time and attention it deserves, while never missing a deadline. Now he wants to help other writers do the same, by showing them how to take control of their calendar and schedule, use ‘clean mind theory’ and daily goals to write more effectively, take better notes, and even organise their workspace.

Antony will be zooming into our virtual studio for an evening talk where you’ll get the chance to learn some useful techniques that will help improve your writing routines and processes while also hearing more about Antony’s personal writing journey. Towards the end of the session, the floor will open up so that you can ask Antony any burning questions you might have!
