Find the

courage to

create

this summer.

For many of us summer is a season when we can actually designate some focused time for our own learning and exploration. This is what the Summer Intensives are all about— taking a week or more to concentrate on a new learning or deepening an ongoing pursuit; energizing our minds and spirits through immersion in a creative and intellectual journey; and building the momentum to carry us into an ongoing practice. Our summer starts in June with our ever special Women’s Words: Summer Writing Week and continues into July and August with courses in the visual arts, personal exploration, the creative process itself, and languages.

EXGEN 3826su1 Kelly Polanski, instructor Tuesday–Friday, August 7–10, 9 am–noon Fee: $285 + GST = $299.25

Do you have a passion for fabric, colour, texture, and patterns? Unleash your creativity by learning various methods of designing pattern, printing, and dyeing textiles. We will look at traditional methods of textile design such as batik, shibori, and silk painting. You will be guided through the steps in designing textile from visualization and inspiration to exploring various methods and combining different techniques to transform fiber into expressive artwork.

Unlock the mysteries of your unconscious by learning to understand the hidden meaning of your dreams. Bounce out of bed, write down your dream and bring it to this morning workshop where we’ll explore your dream’s structure, interpretation, and life influence. Swiss Psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung said that in understanding our dreams, “the momentary life of consciousness can once more be brought into harmony with… the natural law of [one’s] own being.” Let your dreams express their mystery, seed your imagination, and find integrative expression to enrich your life and nourish your soul.

This course is open to everyone; Faculty of Extension Fine Arts and Residential Interiors Certificate students may earn elective credit toward their Certificate Program by completing this course.

EXGEN 3827su1 Margaret Macpherson, instructor Tuesday–Friday, August 7–10, 1–4 pm Fee: $285 + GST = $299.25

The more we discover about how people learn and think, the more we realize that the development of our creative minds through innovative activities and processes is key to our success. Explore and experience the design and implementation of arts-based activities and learn the valuable thinking processes behind them. Designed for facilitators, researchers, project leaders, and artists who want to better understand the creative process and learn how to help others develop their creative capacities.

Spontaneity and embracing the importance of play are central components of this expressive arts course. We’ll begin by creating and reflecting on a piece of written work. Then we’ll reinterpret the written work into new media (painting, soundscapes, sculpting) to gain a deeper understanding and new insight. This class operates on the mandate of low skills, high sensitivity. In other words, you don’t have to be a writer, sculptor or painter to participate.

Our shared humanity—

19th Annual

Women’s Words: Summer Writing Week

listening and telling our stories— is what binds us to each other. Kim Echlin

June 1 to 10 A program for women with stories to tell: all women, in other words, both established and new writers. Work in small, interactive groups with published writers and awardwinning authors. Come for a day or two, for the weekend(s), or the entire week to explore poetry, life writing, fiction, and creative nonfiction. www.womenswords.ca

Unlock your muse and tap into your authentic writer’s voice through the practice of different types of meditation and reflection exercises. Learn how to connect with the creativity of the human mind—and write from this open heart/mind place. We will learn how to use meditation to release writer’s block; write from the heart/mind without censorship and discover how to access our creativity. This will be our basis to write poetry and prose. Knowledge of meditation is not needed, just an openness to sit, reflect and be guided into different meditative journeys to help unleash our inner creativity and free us from writer’s block.

Sandra will tell the quest of Georgina Stirling from Newfoundland who in 1888 broke with convention to pursue her passions. These stories, as well as examples of contemporary women’s creative work, will be used along with in-class guided writing exercises to offer you a way to develop your voice and writing. A reader will be provided that includes selections from all the work to be discussed.

Student Readings Over Lunch Tuesday–Friday, June 5–8, 12:20–1:20 pm Room 2-957, Enterprise Square Attend mini-tutorials that will teach you how to become a skillful performer of your words. Develop comfort inhabiting the performance space. Participants will then have the opportunity to hear each others’ work— always a highlight of the week. The session on Friday, June 8, will feature Songwriting Essentials instructor, Althea Cunningham, performing songs written by her students.

Writing From the Inside Out: A Writing/Discovery Workshop EXGEN 3758sp1 Sandra Campbell, instructor Monday–Friday, June 4–8, 9 am–noon Fee: $325* + GST = $341.25 *$285 if registering in more than one course

Develop a new awareness of the stories that collect inside each of us and the unique dynamics of the body/mind with memory, feelings, images, and the imagination that we can harvest to write stories. In a spirit of relaxation and play, Sandra offers exercises that combine easy body stretches to awaken the body with poems and images that unleash memory, the imagination, and spontaneity. Then in-class writing exercises enable participants to discover and write their inside stories. Aspects of the writing craft required for developing character, place and plot are also included. Wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring an empty notebook.

Crafting the Postcard Story EXGEN 3757sp1 Jannie Edwards, instructor Monday–Friday, June 4–8, 9 am–noon Fee: $325* + GST = $341.25 *$285 if registering in more than one course

You might call postcard story the love child of poetry and prose: a combination of the compressed symbolic charge of a lyric poem with a remarkably wide choice of narrative techniques. Charles Baxter eloquently evokes the “less is more” principle of the postcard story: “Some other world is making its way into these brief, reticent, meticulous stories.” Working in a welcoming, supportive, creative environment, participants will engage with a variety of prompts to craft short but intensely powerful “flash fictions.” Participants will be invited to bring photographs, images and artifacts to use as inspiration for stories. Writers will develop between three to seven postcard stories.

Writing Personal Essays EXGEN 3176sp1 Shirley A. Serviss, instructor Monday–Friday, June 4–8, 9 am–noon Fee: $325* + GST = $341.25 *$285 if registering in more than one course

In personal essays you are the authority on your life. No outlines or footnotes are required, just the ability to reflect on your life experiences. This class will explore the basics of the personal essay and where to find markets. You’ll have an opportunity to write and share your work in a group setting. Inspiration will be provided. This class will appeal to writers of all ages and at all stages of their career who are interested in memoir or creative nonfiction.

Remaking the World Through Creative Nonfiction EXGEN 3447sp1 Janice Williamson, instructor Monday–Friday, June 4–8, 9 am–noon Fee: $325* + GST = $341.25 *$285 if registering in more than one course

Creative nonfiction attends to the real by using literary and storytelling effects that tune your ear to language and voice while drawing on a documentary approach. Through short talks, dialogue, in-class writing, and readings, we’ll ask you to refine your subject and write about what matters. We’ll also investigate this wide-ranging genre that can include: reportage and testimony, memoir and the journal, biographies and family histories, the lyric or segmented essay, photo or image/text essay, opinion essays and cultural analysis, science and literary journalism, travel and environmental writing. Be prepared to read aloud from your new work to our supportive class audience focused on constructive critical feedback.

You will have an opportunity to have your work critiqued by the group. While the emphasis in this seminar will be on producing new work, participants can work with the instructor on revisions. Suitable for emerging writers as well as more experienced ones.
