SATURDAY, JULY 20 | Writing is wonderful when it flows, but how can we regularly tap into the flow state? In this class we will explore ways of accessing the unconscious for our writing. We will brainstorm, explore, play writing games, look at our dreams, and explore guided meditation for creativity. I will give you ten activities that you can use outside class to get inspired when the inspiration is not happening, and you will create 23 Ideas for Me — a book that we will brainstorm together with individualized prompts for your writing. This will be three hours (with a 10-minute break) of intense brainstorming, creating, idea-making, and writing that will leave you inspired to write NOW.
Jenny Bitner’s stories have appeared in The Best American Nonrequired Reading, The Sun, PANK, Mississippi Review, and the Fabulist. She has an M.F.A. in creative writing from the University of Virginia. She is a certified hypnotherapist and is especially interested in using the unconscious mind to enhance creativity.
