CREATIVE BREAKTHROUGHS Workshop led by Zip Creative’s Joanne Zippel begins February 4th in Montclair

Producer, Manager, Creative Coach and longtime Montclair resident, Joanne Zippel will lead a CREATIVE BREAKTHROUGHS workshop in Montclair NJ beginning Tuesday February 4. The workshop meets every other Tuesday from 6:30-8:30 for 8 sessions over a 16 week period through May 13th, 2014. This workshop is for writers in all genres, filmmakers, performers, directors, producers, visual artists or anyone actively pursuing a creative career.

An outgrowth of Zippel’s successful seminar “Reaching the ‘Right’ People in Your Creative Career”, CREATIVE BREAKTHROUGHS will go further by offering participants inspiration, guidance and techniques that will deepen their inner support system as well as help them take practical strategic action to move their creative work to a higher level and achieve balance in their professional and personal lives. Among the topics to be covered are: Removing Blocks to Creative Flow; Letting Go of Limiting Beliefs that Hold You Back; Authentic Marketing of Your Creative Work; Making a living as an Artist; Clarifying Your Vision and Crafting a Your Commitment Plan; and Maintaining Work/Life Balance.

The workshop is also a forum for artists to connect with each other, share ideas, resources and create community. Zippel explains, “My experience has been that when artists get together and support each other, synergies and synchronicities can take place that lead to exciting breakthroughs for group members.”

The workshop meets every other Tuesday from 6:30-8:30 for 8 sessions over a 16 week period. The workshop will be held at 12 South Mountain Avenue, building #27, Montclair. The time is 6:30-8:30 pm.
