Has your novel stalled/ Out of ideas for new stories? Want to try something out of the box to get your creativity flowing? You don’t have to be a psychic to use tarot cards as a tool for inspiration.

This class will focus on using Tarot Cards and different layouts to help you create characters, conflicts, and brainstorm ideas for stories and novels. Lisa will have a few tarot decks for you to borrow during class, but if you have your own, please bring it with you.

We’ll have a few practice exercises too so bring your laptop or notebook and get ready to get creative!
