Brian Andreas – Creative Anarchy: The Art of Compression

Duration of Class: One Day (6 Hours) // Medium: Writing // Skill Level: All


We’re excited to offer a streamlined writing workshop that focuses on getting at the heart of what you want to say. In this workshop, we combine Brian’s unique way of distilling layers of story into a few words with Fia’s eye on the body as it engages in the practice of creating something new. Together we challenge common ideas of creativity that get in the way of your imagination; guide you in practices that get to the essence of what you want to say in your writing; and offer physical feedback throughout the workshop, to encourage a more whole-body response to any creative process. A week before the workshop, we’ll send you a few writing prompts, so you can come into the space with some ideas…. Don’t fret about this. Anything you bring will be perfect, and you’ll have an opportunity to write more during the first half of the workshop. During the second half of the workshop, we’ll focus on compression, saying more with fewer words. If you have any questions, please email Fia at
