"With an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, I collected the instruments of life around me, that I might infuse a spark of being into the lifeless thing that lay at my feet."
--Mary Shelley, Frankenstein (1818)
Using the life of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein, to illustrate the primary causes of writing anxiety as outlined at the Writing Center of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill website, workshop participants will explore their own writing anxiety.
