The poet Maya Angelou once said, “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” This week, The Creative Life hopes to embody this ethos and tap into the more originative side of the self as we work to deepen our understanding of what exactly it means to pursue a creative passion as a profession.
To reach our goal, the group will be provided with ample opportunities to write, think, and create. Each day will present a different artistic outlet, and by the end of the week each student will have created a piece of fiction, a poem, a short film, song lyrics, a literary magazine, and will have participated in a literary reading at a coffee shop. And as an added caveat, each will be able to label themself a published author!
The group will also learn from working artists as we engage with working poets, professors, musicians, artists, and film makers.
