Sandy is a professional writer from Australia and she wrote this little instructional zine. She says it’s a “mini-zine of excercises that have helped me through writer’s block.” Twenty-six different exercises describe a variety of things that writers can do to inspire creativity and get the words flowing again. I don’t usually get excited about writing exercises, but there are some pretty good ideas in here, and I can see them being useful even if you’re not struggling with writer’s block. A couple that I really liked were Write About Your Writer’s Block (“Explore the possibility of having writer’s block forever.”) and The Worse It Gets, The Better It Gets (“Write the worst piece you could possibly write.”).

Contact Sandy to find out about the cost of the zine and possible trades.
