Are you a creative person? Artistic, even? Can anyone be creative or artistic? Is creativity a trait some people just have, that some are simply born with – or is it something that can be taught? Is creativity a bolt of lightening, or a long, intentional and involved process? And what does the creative process look like, anyway? Join Gary Lawrence, creative writer and teacher of creative writing, to explore the transformation of an idea into a work of art. We’ll explore the creative process of a few artists, and Gary will outline the creative process he uses to write short stories, and use one of his short stories as an example of how the transformation happens.
