“When the soul is on the page, literature has been created.”
– Frank Conroy
Creative writing is a supreme human activity that requires a writer to understand one’s self and one’s subject at the deepest level – from the inside-out. Looked at through the lens of human psychology, these twin stand-alone seminars focus on two of the deep qualities of personality and character that empower the writer to transform from a craftsperson into an artist.
The idea behind this seminar is that great writing is fueled and infused by some poignant, passionate issue in one’s life. Accordingly, its goal is to help participants locate the central issue that forms their artistic identity and leads to putting their emotional truth on the page.
