|Muses of the Night: Dreams and Writing|
If we take the time to learn their language, we discover that every dream is a masterpiece of symbolic communication. The unconscious speaks in symbols, not to confuse us, but simply because that is its native idiom.
Dreams are natural muses for creative writing. They are made from the stuff of the soul but without the self-censorship of the waking, judgemental mind. Their wisdom can serve as inspiration for powerful writing, writing that also brings insight to the writer. In this 2-hour workshop you will explore your connection with your dreams, as well as new ways of engaging with them, investigate a dream symbol, and use your dreams as a source for poetry or prose. Writers of any genre at any level are invited to attend.
When: September, to be determined
Where: 70 Sydney Street, Charlottetown
