Literary Side Projects and Creative Detours: A workshop

Date: 
07/14/2018 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: 
Cooperative Gallery 213 State St Binghamton

Literary Side Projects and Creative Detours: Writers and artists often find themselves struggling to begin, be it on a long-simmering idea for a novel, the perfect story, a poem, or any number of creative projects. When faced with the monumental task of “getting it right”, unfortunately many succumb to self-imposed pressure and never begin in the first place, or if they do they often become overwhelmed and disillusioned with the process. In this two-part presentation and workshop session, Andrei Guruianu will discuss the psychological, artistic, and professional benefits of “thinking small” — working on side projects, exploring distractions, forging creative collaborations, and most of all finding pleasure in the act of creating itself — all as a way to nurture the creative self and foster a frame of mind that keeps you coming back to what you love to do. Guruianu will provide examples, suggestions, and resources for participants to be able to explore a range of such “creative detours” for themselves and begin their own side projects.

This event is funded in part by Poets & Writers with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
