A mini-session in Cultivating a Creative Practice with Teresa Piccari is set for Wednesday, March 13, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Rockport Public Library, 485 Commercial St./Route 1. Admission is free; save a seat by calling 236-3642.

The session is aimed at writers or artists who have a sporadic approach to their creativity. One does not have to wait for a lightening bolt of inspiration or a mysterious muse to show up and demand to be heard — there is another way to be creatively productive.

By intentionally making the time and space for your art, you can develop a more intimate connection to your voice and style; better understand your unique creative process; and increase your output. Cultivating a consistent practice, whether it be in a studio or engaging with nature, keeps creative muscles toned and sustains the well one draws upon to bring something new into the world.

This session is geared for writers and artists of all genres who need help developing consistency in their creative life, or want to refresh their practice. Participants should bring paper and a pen so they can take notes and participate in writing prompts during the class.

Piccari has been helping people tell their fiction and nonfiction stories for 22 years through a diverse palette of workshops. She also works independently with artists and writers as a coach.
