Writing in the New Year

The Creative Independent—an inspiring source of professional and personal guidance for artists, designers, and “creatives”—has issued a wonderful tool for the New Year: Synchronicity, an online worksheet of writing prompts designed to provoke “synchronicity between creative practice and life” in the year ahead. Give it a try, and if you like, come share your responses with an A&L tutor. Writing + talking —> doing and being!
