Hitting writers block and need a creative boost? Consult the cards and let them be your companion! In this generative writing workshop we'll look at how tarot can help us unlock our creative subconscious and uncover new language. We'll ask ourselves specific questions regarding the cards and pave a path using imaginative prompts to create new poems or stories. No previous tarot experience necessary.

What Our Students Say

"Meg Wade was so encouraging and enthusiastic as a teacher. She was clearly so passionate about the materials, and was able to discuss the craft deeply and sharply. She lead workshops with incisive critiques that helped me reflect on my own work in new ways that have opened up new avenues for exploration of my art. Thank you!"

"Meg presented the material and models with great enthusiasm and created a really innovative exercise. She is so knowledgeable about poetry, but she knew just how much to feed us so that we could apply it to our own writing as a start."

"Meg Wade packs a lot of learning and writing into her classes. Meg's choice of examples and our discussion deepened my understanding of prose poetry. The prompt and subsequent discussion of our writing inspired several of us to continue working on the pieces we began. This was an informative and motivating workshop, and Meg's style of facilitating is welcoming and skilled."
