Practice and Technique for Cultivating Creative Flow
This hands-on workshop provides participants with innovative methods to maintain and enhance creative flow and the opportunity to dialogue about their processes with other writers. Through discussion and writing exercises, writers explore ideas and techniques and gain understanding into why we can experience blocks. Examples of how contemporary artists address these issues are also offered. Sharing of writing is encouraged in a welcoming, non-critical environment.
Participants who attend this workshop should gain:
• A greater understanding of the process of creative writing
• A greater understanding of creative blocks, why we have them and how to avoid them
• Positive experience of sharing writing with others
• Positive experience of discussing issues of creativity with other writers
• Clearer self-understanding
• Creative inspiration
