AUDIO COURSE 2 Elements of Surprise << for POETS & PROSE-WRITERS >>
"No surprise for the writer, no surprise for the reader...” Robert Frost.
Would you love to surprise yourself as well as your readers? In a rut with your writing? This is a FREE audio course for those seeking to deepen their practice. Invaluable for connecting with the world and with your self more deeply, to express or discover fresh insights. Easy to listen to, enjoyable, straightforward. For writing of all kinds, and writers of all abilities. 'ELEMENTS' is for all writing genres, NOT JUST POETRY.
Maybe you're looking for that SPECIAL INGREDIENT, that extra SPARK? We often assume that a ‘surprise’ is some sudden or unpredictable event beyond our knowledge, outside our control. In fact, we can create surprises. We can make them happen in our work, and within ourselves, far more than we think!
As a writer, I yearn for my words to escape their confines, to leap away into stunning new terrain. I want my own writing practice to teach me. But how on earth do we surprise ourselves, fenced in by what we already know? This comprehensive audio course answers that question, without being onerous. It gets imagination to jump that fence. Watch your writing take off, riding on the back of invigorating, incisive language.
“I don’t need an alarm clock. My ideas wake me.” Ray Bradbury
