Intuitive Writing

Facilitated by Bruce Kauffman


Tuesday, May 3rd




Rehearsal Hall (The Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning) 

Workshop Description

Bruce Kauffman’s ‘intuitive writing’ workshop, developed in 2012, is based on his explorations and observations about his own writing, “… concepts developed in the early 90’s as I watched in my own creative process then, the substance and style of how and what I was writing began to change.” This workshop is designed with less a 'how to write well' and more a 'why and from where should I write' mindset. It was even billed once, by a Queen's campus student writing group, as a guide to overcome writer's block.

Materials Needed 

  • A notebook or a few sheets of paper
  • A pen or pencil
