Sparking Creativity By Exploring Liminal Space

December 30, 2021  7-8.30pm

A strict writing routine is great for progress, but murder on creativity. So how do you balance the two? By learning to find your way into liminal space. Simply put, liminal space is the threshold between the routine and the random, the known and the unknown; a literary destination where things get a little bit uncomfortable and your imagination takes center stage. In this workshop, award-winning author Dana McSwain will share tips and tools for sparking creativity in your day-to-day life by breaking your routine and creating space for the unpredictable. Registration opens 9am November 30, 2021. This workshop will be offered virtually through the William N. Skerbal Writing Center of the South Euclid-Lyndhurst branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library.
