Myth, Magic, & Metaphor, attempts to put together a fairly simple creative writing classroom scenario. The idea is to awaken the aesthetic sense, the creative muse who lurks within us all. The method is multisensory, interdisciplinary, and holistic. Philosophy, art, music, and linguistics are some of the disciplines used. The goal is to have the reader recognize and enjoy the process. It asks for the students of writing to experience the sense of wonder they knew as children, to use their imagination, to feel and absorb the world around them, to listen, not just to hear, to see, not just to look, in sum, to become intoxicated with life. The tool is the heart: the medium is words. “They say that the human mind, once stretched to a new idea, never returns to its original shape.” (Georgi Lozanov). Our hope is that this little tome will reshape a few minds. “Myth, Magic, & Metaphor” is luminous with oracular wisdom about the nature and sources of creativity. From first page to last, this book will inspire you to be inspired.” Richard Lederer, author of The Miracle of Language, Crazy English, The Play of Words, and many other “Linguistic Treasures”
