In this course we will explore how writing helps an artist claim, reframe and integrate your past while visioning new possibilities for your work. We will cover creative living, listening, learning and teaching, self talk (silencing the critic), writers’ block, success vs. mastery, failure and fears, authenticity and the gift of accountability partners.
“Creativity is like breathing, we must rhythmically expand and contract.”
Come prepared with a blank notebook and an open heart :)

About the Instructor:
?Mary Kay Robinson
I am a professional flutist who balances a career (in normal times) between performance, leadership and academia. I perform with orchestras and chamber musicians throughout the country as well as off broadway productions, world music and jazz, freelancing on a national scale. I try to be as versatile as possible, from Baroque flute, piccolo, alto flute to Penny Whistle, Renaissance music to jazz and Bossa Novas. I teach privately and have at the University level for 15 years and have a passion for teaching creatives through innovation and entrepreneurship.
