Almost 70% of people experience imposter syndrome in their lifetimes, but in the midst of it everything seems lonely and echoing. In this discussion, writer Athena Dixon will give an overview of impostor syndrome– what it is, how to identify it, and perhaps how we can begin to work through it and use it to our advantage.

  • How does impostor syndrome show up both on the page and off?
  • How do we begin to not only recognize it, but also give ourselves both grace and strength when attempting to manage it?
  • How does imposter syndrome speak to parts of our creative selves that may need attention?

Athena will share her experiences with these doubts along with tips on how we can both embrace and combat these feelings as means of better approaching the page.

About the series: How-To Tuesdays are monthly talks on the craft of creative nonfiction, publishing, marketing and the writing life led by Hippocampus Magazine editors & contributors. Your registration helps fund our contributor payments and other costs associated with running our journal.
