Many people think they’re not born creative, despite the intimations that whisper otherwise. However, new research shows that everyone was creative when they were young, and that most have been taught to dismiss it, scorn it, and eventually forget how to do it.
Over the course of this one-day workshop, you’ll recapture your creativity and go home astounded with yourself. Learn the neuroscience of creative thinking from the point of view of a fascinated novelist, bestselling author Sue Woolfe. You’ll leave the class with new tips, techniques, and an understanding of how creativity can enrich your writing.
