Habits of Creativity: Exploring Writing Methods Workshop

Presented by The Arts House


How do you generate new ideas for your writing? Are there established methods out there? How does one go about carving out one’s own creative process and remain disciplined? In this workshop, poet Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé invites both emerging and established practitioners to discuss their own effective writing habits and processes. The writing segment will have participants engaging with Desmond’s book of creative prompts, The World According to Ms Erasure. The first 15 participants each receives a complimentary copy of the book.
