We are looking forward to a wonderful new year of art and writing. In addition to sharing and critiquing each other’s prose, fiction, poems, and art, we will be dedicating the first Tuesday of each month to a creativity workshop. We’ll be using the book The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. Exercises and assignments from the book will help us deal with being blocked creatively. Topics will include the “internal editor,” people who have failed to support our work as artists, and thoughts like I’m too old, or I’m not good enough, or I’ll never be accepted as a writer or artist. We’ll also look at fear and anxiety as emotions that tend to block our creativity. We will not be meeting on Tuesday, December 15, 2015. Our next meeting will be Tuesday, January 5, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. Have a happy holiday season. See you in January.
