Tarot for Fiction Writers
The 78 cards that make up the tarot offer an overview of all of life: from the child-like innocence of "The Fool" to the mastery represented in "The World." In this class, through lecture, writing, and tarot exercises, you'll learn tarot-based techniques to inspire and strengthen your fiction. We'll focus on character development, plot arc, and scene structure. This class can be used to generate new fiction or for revising a novel or short story. No previous tarot experience necessary.
