Subject: Earn 1 credit hour this weekend!


Professor Blevins is teaching a Professional Practice class called the Creative Surge this weekend.
You can get 1 hour credit for taking this class and it is sure to be a fun and educational time.

You can still enroll if you move on it soon!  E-mail Kelly Storm in Gaylord who can zap you with her **enrollment powers**.   Details about the course are below.

I'm in!  Hope to see some of you there.


> Okay, the clas times are these:
> February 4, Fri:  6 - 9 pm
> February 5, Sat: 9 am - 12:30 pm
> February 6, Sun: 1:00 - 4:00 pm
> If you know anyone else, maybe someone in PSWA who'd like this class, please let them know!  It's called something like Professional Practice, not The Creative Surge, because they had to fit it into the class names that they have.
> Here's the Description if you want to pass it along:
> The Creative Surge:  Freeing Your Inner Writer
> "This class is entirely experiential.  We will not learn about creativity, nor talk about being creative, nor think about being creative.  This class is about doing.  It is about process, not product.  We will turn our creativity loose, and play and work together using exercises and break-out sessions.  We will improvise poetic prose, make up songs, brainstorm, play with words in a Dr. Seuss style, imagine characters and their settings, write scenes, write poems, and write dialog.  We will break down our boundaries and recover the child within us.  For three days we will be absolutely creative human beings--no judgments.  This fluid enery will move our writing projects, whether fiction or non-fiction, into juicy reality.  When we take this experience home, the knowledge we've gained won't be carried in our intellect as much as in our muscles, bones, and heart.  It is from these places that we fine the freedom to write in truly extraordinary ways."
