Message from Paula at the Advanced Writing Centre, CNAQ:
As part of the ongoing effort to expand our writing workshops, the Advanced Writing Centre will be offering a one night workshop in creative journalling with guest graphic recorder, Jenn Wicks. Jenn and I are trying out this new format with an eye to putting together something more substantial for the fall, and it would be great to have you participate and give us your feedback. Space is limited to 12 participants, so please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to attend. (If we get more than 12, we may consider a second class.)
Workshop: Creative Journalling: Discovering the Writer Within
When: Wednesday, June 6, 5.30-8.30
Where: AWC @ College of the North Atlantic-Qatar
Creative Journalling: Discovering the Writer Within
Keeping a journal is a great way to relax, reflect, and discover your creative self. Now, you can take your journal to a whole new level! Through activities that stimulate your thinking and help release your creative side, this workshop can (re)ignite your joy of writing. A series of writing exercises and discussion will help get you started!
As an exciting new addition to this upcoming workshop, we have invited graphic recorder Jenn Wicks. Graphic recording is a method of representing the contributions of participants in visually-appealing and creative ways. The recorder represents ideas on a large poster where all participants can see their words come to life. This process can generate opportunities for creative writing as ideas are linked and organized by the recorder, and participants will hopefully be inspired as their ideas become part of a “bigger picture”. At the end of the session, we will have an electronic document displaying the group contributions, which we will share with all participants. Jenn will also speak briefly about the skill of graphic recording as a potential tool in the creative process.
New and experienced journal writers welcome!
Please feel free to pass this notice on to others who may be interested.
