What we're about

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We all have a creative spark within us. Some burn brightly, others are a flickering candle, while others have been reduced to smoldering embers. Now is the time to fan the flame. The world needs our poetry, our stories, our art, our music, and the light we manifest through them.

The purpose of the group is to support and encourage each other on our creative paths and collectively turn up the light. If you are a writer, painter, dancer, musician--or any of the myriad forms creativity can take--and need some inspiration along the way, this group is for you.

The foundation of the group is still Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity." If you are struggling through the book on your own, we are here for support and encouragement, and we will also discuss other writings on creativity and have fun with creative play and exercises.

Rediscover your creative self. If you are just beginning, or if you are fully engaged in your art and want to go deeper or find a new direction, this group is for you.

Note the new day and location: Third Thursday of every month at Towne Book Center & Café in Collegeville.
