About This Class:
What are some techniques I can use to turn writing from a chore into a chance to be creative? How do I start? How can I make my writing more compelling?
This is a think-outside-of-the-box, fun creative writing workshop that will get the participants outside of their usual writing comfort zone. The goal is to chip away at the discomfort/frustration/challenge with writing that many people have and explore new ways to dive into our imagination and put words together.
Writing is an important life skill. Changing a negative relationship to the writing process can make a world of difference to a professional whose job requires wrangling with the written word.
Writing can be a creative process. Creativity can lead to innovation, effective problem solving, and allow one to explore one's beliefs, thoughts and feelings. Creativity breeds new ideas and new ideas can help change the world!
The Hour's Creative Indulgences:
- Where do writers get their ideas? Explore the art of tapping into inspiration and hunting down the creative spark in unexpected places.
- The Writer's Brew: Explore how to make your writing zing, snap and crackle!
- Reluctant Writer's Magic Potion: Solutions for the reluctant writer.
The class will make use of innovative creative writing activities to get people out of their "work" heads and into their imaginations.
