Big Magic: Interpreting with Wonder and Joy


Creativity isn’t limited to the arts. Creativity is inspiration. Its wonder and joy. It’s curiosity.


This book discussion will use Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear as a framework to explore creativity in interpreting. This book, along with group discussions, will find new ways to look at interpreting with curiosity and inspiration and to infuse our work with wonder, joy, and passion.
