Creative Summer Sessions - Drop In

40.00

WEDNESDAYS 7-9PM * JULY 4 - AUG 22, 2018
BRIDGELAND, CALGARY, AB
FACILITATORS: ALEXA GILKER & PAIGE REIST
ALL LEVELS & EXPERIENCES WELCOME

Have you been held hostage by the need to create marketable “content”? Are you obsessing over the right hashtags, keywords, SEO, you-might-gag-if-we-throw-out-another-buzzword word? Bored and handcuffed by trying to be #authentic when everything actually just looks the same? Do you kinda want to just play in a sandbox with no rules and get a lot of sand in your pants?? CUZ THAT’S US! US TOO! 🙋

When was the last time you created simply for the joy of it, like a kid building a fort or finger painting in the mud?

Our goal in the Creative Summer Sessions is to dunk your mind in an ice cold lake, shake up your creativity, your patterns, the places you feel stuck, and pull you out exhilarated, refreshed, and inspired to JUST FREAKING CREATE. Make shit. Make good shit and bad shit. Just MAKE.

On Wednesday evenings, we will gather with fellow creatives in inspiring, historical Bridgeland outside on a gorgeous covered patio, surrounded by trees, with a view of the city. We might drink wine. It might be pink. Like the sunset. Who knows? Through writing exercises, prompts, activities, and discussion, you will create more than just content. You’ll rediscover your creative roots. Break free of creating for “followers”. Discover what is unique to your voice. Transform your idea of what creative success looks like.

Writing is supposed to be fun- so we’re making it fun again. We’re not offering “ten steps to grow your email list”, we’re offering space for the purity and joy of creativity for creativity’s sake.

WHO
This is for writers of all kinds: fiction, non-fiction, memoirists, poets, song-writers, bloggers, instagrammers, & content creators. It’s also for people who don’t usually write but want to try, for people who want to get their hands dirty and their brains scrambled, and for people who just plain like messing around.

PAYMENT
We get that the summer is a crazy time, that’s why we’re offering a drop-in class format. If you want to commit to all 8, by all means! But if your schedule is a bit unpredictable, we’ve created the 4 SESSION DROP-IN for you. Choose 4 sessions that fit your dates and save, or drop-in for $40 a class when it suits you. We don’t care when you come, we just want you to create!

Choose 1 day to drop in, or up to 3 if you know your schedule!
