Workshop: Tarot for the Writer's Soul

  • Brentwood Social House 1601 W. Koenig Lane Austin, Texas 78756 (map)

As Tarot readers, we utilize the rich imagery and metaphorical language of the cards to better understand our own lives and to shape our personal stories. Tarot is also an ideal tool for writers, as a source of inspiration and support. In this workshop led by Typewriter Tarot reader Claire Bowman, we will:

  • Utilize Tarot to inspire, develop, and refine ideas for writing

  • Explore the Tarot's archetypes and symbols as inspiration for our work

  • Discover ways to incorporate Tarot into our regular writing practice

  • Explore how we can use Tarot to create more comfort (and less self-doubt!) in our writing / creative practice

Participants will be writing during the workshop, and we'll focus on the work you create in class, rather than previous work or work-in-progress. This workshop is open to writers of all skill levels and genres, and likely useful to artists working in different disciplines.

Participants should bring their own Tarot decks (if you have one). We will be using the Smith Rider Waite deck, or other decks based on its system. We will also have extra decks available for use during class if you don't currently own a Tarot deck.
