“What if I’m out of ideas?” is the deepest fear of many writers, but after this course, it doesn’t have to be. Even the smallest ideas can easily turn into huge successes. After all, the great symphonies of history began with a few notes, and Middle-earth only began with the germ of an idea.
This workshop aims to encourage your creativity and provide you with tools you can use whenever you feel uninspired. The discussion will include an exciting mix of instructions, games and exercises designed to stimulate your creativity. In this course, you will learn how your senses interact with the world around you and how these senses can influence creativity in different ways. As part of the writing exercises, you will learn to write from a simple smell, touch, image, taste, sound and memory.
This workshop is aimed at writers, but artists from different types of media have found it beneficial.
This course in partnership with SoLit and The Chattery.
Note: Masks are optional.
