ClassTarot Tells the Story
The Tarot has long been used as a divination tool, but did you know that it is also the secret weapon of many professional writers? We will explore the twenty-two basic archetypes found in the Tarot, and learn how to read images to develop storyline, plot, and characters. We will use the element of chance to create plot twists and overcome writer’s block. Please note that this is not a class about reading Tarot cards for divination, but as a tool for generating stories, and delving deeper into all stages of the creative writing process. No prior experience is required.
This class is for writers of all genres. Each week’s prompts and exercises are designed to help you assimilate class material and kick-start your writing process. Those looking for a little more structure will be guided on how to build on the weekly assignments towards the completion of an original short story. You are encouraged to post your questions and assignments as discussion threads via the online forum. The teaching artist will be available to answer questions during the weekly live chat, and follow up on forum topics.
