Tarot for Writers

Most people think of tarot cards as a fortune-telling device, but they’re also a great tool for writing and creative thinking. Writers from John Steinbeck to Stephen King have used tarot cards for inspiration, and Italian novelist Italo Calvino went so far as to call the tarot “a machine for writing stories.” Corrine, the owner of the Haunted Antique Shop, wrote a best-selling guide to Tarot for Writers, and we’ll use it as our textbook.

Astrology for Writers

The nighttime sky has inspired writers and astrologers alike to spin stories on the strands of starlight. Now you can unleash your creativity by adding astrology to your writing practice. Learn how to use the planets for characters, the signs of the zodiac for plot and themes, and the houses of the horoscope for settings. Develop unique characters based on mythic archetypes, use astrological imagery and symbolism for your descriptions and dialogue, and put theory into practice with writing prompts and examples. Invite the gods and goddesses of astrology to enter your writing and share their stories through you.
