Creative Writing Course at Fleming College

Experiential course provides an opportunity to explore writing-focused expressive arts taught by Gili Haimovich at Haliburton School of The Arts.

Instruction will involve an interdisciplinary approach that includes additional art modalities such as voice and music, movement and dance, visual arts and drama as they generate and support the writing process. Discover how the creative writing process teaches you to articulate inner sensations, emotions, and thoughts. Exploring a variety of art modalities in the realm of creative writing gives a fresh perspective on recurring themes and issues in our lives, and deepens our understanding of the metaphors and images that surround us. Writing-focused expressive arts are effective with a range of populations, from high functioning adults and children, to clients who are not native English speakers, to populations with different challenges, including those who are not highly verbal. A background in writing is not required.
