Workshop by Ian Irvine (Hobson)  (17.00-18.30 Saturday, Oct. 31st, 2015)

How should we think and act whilst converting ideas for creative works into early drafts with real potential? What habits of thought and action can best facilitate the creative process? Similarly: what habits need to be challenged and replaced? This workshop is based upon years of research into a range of ancient (i.e. Egyptian, Celtic, Greco-Roman, Norse, Alchemical, etc.) and modern understandings of the role of creativity in the lives of writers, artists and creative thinkers. Insights discussed are backed by years of experience teaching and mentoring hundreds of creative writers and thinkers.

PRESENTER:

Dr Ian Irvine (Hobson) is a writing teacher, creativity expert and published author/poet. He has taught writing, humanities and psychology subjects at various Victorian universities and TAFES since the mid-1990s and currently coordinates the writing program at Bendigo Kangan Institute. Along with Dr Sue King-Smith he founded the Zoetics Institute: Creativity for Change in 2013. His stories, poems, articles, essays, songs, etc. have been published, performed etc. widely.
