Ancient poets invoked the goddess of creativity before beginning work. They courted the Muse. But must poetry or other writing really need divine intervention? Not at all. Let Ms. Dresser show you reliable methods for breaking down barriers to your creativity. Learn how to loosen your own internal voice of criticism and get on with writing. Such methods do indeed exist, ways of developing a unique internal vocabulary ready to aid both beginning writers and old pros. Come see if OLLI and Ms. Dresser can help you win the blessings of some up-to-date muses.
