For those of you embarking on your writing journey, we thank you for joining us, and for writers currently underway, we trust that you are enjoying the process in whichever course you are participating in.
Whether you are writing your novel or screenplay, short stories or unlocking your creativity, we believe the writing of fiction nourishes the soul of the writer and ultimately the reader.
Tap into the Power of Your Imagination
We always read the quote below in the first session of our 4-Week Unlocking Creativity course.
“Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heartache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognise them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty.
Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source. There is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, only to discover what is already there.”
One of the aims of Unlocking Creativity is to give writers tools and techniques to tap into the power of their imagination, which we believe is the true source of creative power. When writers do this, they unlock their creativity, discover their authentic voice, feel their spirits uplifted by the act of writing, and start writing in a way that makes other people want to read what they have written.
Writers’ Studio tutor Ruth Fingret is directing a new musical comedy based on the beloved Australian icon Margaret Fulton. Margaret Fulton is famous for selling 1.5 million cook books.
Not so well known is her bohemian life in The Rocks, escapes from ‘decorative, elegant and useless men’ and struggles as a single mother.
Critically acclaimed at its premiere in Melbourne – described as “hilarious, sassy and rousing” by the Herald-Sun, “a banquet of entertainment” by Stage Whispers Magazine and “ninety minutes of delectable enjoyment” by Simon Parris.
Ruth says: “Directing a show is just like writing. You have to understand the motivations and drivers of the characters and have the actors perform truthfully or else you lose the audience. Lessons I learnt at the Writers ‘Studio find their way into every show I am involved in whether as writer or director. This cast are superb and I can’t wait to see how they bring Margaret Fulton’s story alive on stage this October.”
Margaret Fulton: Queen of the Dessert will run for 10 performances only in October from 12th to 27th at the Bondi Pavilion Theatre in Sydney.
