RWA OWL: Finding Your Creative Writing Energy

RWA OWL: Finding Your Creative Writing Energy

Do you ever get stuck when writing? We have and we’d like to share the alternate activities we’ve used to reclaim our creative writing energy. Practical, simple, sometimes called wacky, we invite you to give them a try.

We will look at:

  • Mindfulness.
  • Meditation.
  • Reading aloud.
  • Using divination tools (e.g. pendulum, oracle cards, tarot cards, runes) to come up with alternate ideas.
  • Using crystals to help with focus, creativity and confidence.

Join in to see what might unlock your creativity.

Catherine has presented writing workshops for the South Coast Writers Centre, Romance Writers of Australia and local libraries. As Cate Ellink, she presented a 2019 OWL on Getting Comfortable Writing Sex. She has also presented workshops, classes, talks and presentations on other topics such as computers, agricultural research, soil acidity and fertility, landscape use, farm management and farming systems.

Together, Kim and Catherine have presented a workshop on Self-Publishing for the Shellharbour Library, and a talk at the Nowra Library. They present a weekly YouTube video and podcast show. Recently, they were invited to speak at the April 2020 WriteHive online global convention. Kim has been a guest on many international podcasts (e.g. Kelton Reid’s The Writer Files) and blog posts (e.g. The Creative Penn).

Pre-course preparation

Nothing is required. Just turn up with an open mind and be willing to try things.

Hours of Commitment

It’s entirely up to participants. If they want to come and collect the notes, that’s fine. If they want to be more interactive, we’re open to weekly chats as well as discussions in the classroom.
