About the Workshop

Small ideas can easily bloom into huge successes. After all, even the great symphonies of history started with a few notes, and even Middle Earth started with just a germ of an idea. This workshop is about encouraging individuals in their own creativity and providing them with tools that they can use any time they are feeling uninspired.  Discussion will include an exciting mixture of instruction, games, and exercises designed to get your creative juices flowing. Attendees will learn how our senses interact with the world around us and can influence creativity in different ways- they will be taught to write from a simple smell, from a touch, from a picture, from a taste, from a sound, and even from a memory. This is the perfect class for someone who wants to get into writing but doesn’t know where to start. “What if I run out of ideas?” is the deepest fear of many writers, but after this class, it doesn’t have to be. This workshop is geared toward writers, but artists in many different kinds of media have found it beneficial.
