 Creativity for Poets, Prose Writers, and Songwriters


Engaging in creative work is fulfilling, rewarding, and reenergizing. In fact, creativity is now emerging as a pillar to a healthy life, elevating mood, decreasing cognitive decline, and improving our overall well-being. Yet too often our creative lives get pushed to the bottom of the to-do list, in part because many of us just don’t know where to start.
That’s where this course comes in. Suitable for anyone seeking more creativity in their daily life, this course uses a set of specially developed cards that walk you through a complete act of creativity in one sitting. Students may write songs, poems, or short prose pieces, with the goal of engaging in this work three to five times a week.

  • Practice placing a priority on being creative
