Spend a morning busting through any kind of artistic blocks and fears and fire up your creativity so that you can (finally) start – or finish – that artistic project you’ve had in mind, be it a short story, novel, newspaper or magazine article, blog, essay or bio. Though this is mostly geared toward writers, nonwriters – artists of any kind, such as painters, photographers, videographers – are welcome to join in the creative wellspring. We’ll play with practical exercise that help us work with the naysayers in our heads, then put pen to paper (or bring your artistic medium) and start having some fun!
