6H: What's Your Creative Type? FILLING
Limited Capacity filling up

The greatest writers in history didn’t just have talent, they also understood their motivations for writing. This understanding is what drove and sustained them. If you’re looking to get going, stay motivated, or feel reinvigorated about writing, you, too, must first know why you write. During this session, you’ll have a fun and inspiring time identifying your creative motivation type, which is the key to understanding your personal “why.” Are you an A-Lister seeking recognition, an Artisan devoted to craft, a Game Changer looking to break boundaries, a Sensitive Soul hoping to help others, or an Activist determined to change the world through writing? This session will include entertaining stories about legendary writers and artists—from Hemingway to Baldwin to Roth to Rowling—who share your traits and tendencies, discussion of creative theories, and artistic personality quizzes…all designed to lead you to the answer to the question: What’s your creative type?
