This is a course which allows you to explore the crafts of writing through the medium of fiction where the only limitation is your imagination.
This course will appeal to both writers as well as non-writers who are self-reflective and open to exploring life events as a way of making greater sense of their passage through life.
Novels, TV and films reveal archetypal patterns, which speak to us at a deep level. Gaining an understanding of the archetypes and what they have to teach us about the stages of life development, unearths rich material to write about our own journey. The course will begin with a brief history of story, biography, the essence of archetypes and the power of creative self-expression. Each day will explore specific archetypes that reflect a time period of our lives. Participants will then compose a story about a life event to uncover its inner meaning. Seeing aspects of your life story in a new light helps clarify your past, as well as the present, and facilitate a shift that can bring insight into your path for the future.
