Tarot for Creative Writing: Major Arcana
In this online workshop you will look at how the Tarot can be used to tell stories and provide structure. You will be guided on the rich folk tradition of the Marseilles Tarot and make use of digitised historical card decks and images from the Portico’s Fun & Games exhibition in your session. Rather than concentrating on occult symbolism, instead you will focus on reading images, and how those images can translate into your writing. The first in this series will showcase the mysterious and evocative Major Arcana, including cards like ‘The High Priestess’, ‘The Moon’, and ‘The Hanged Man’.
No prior experience of Tarot or writing is required. These workshops can be booked individually or work well as a pair for anyone who would like to both. They will be hosted by Kym Deyn, award-winning writer and experienced card reader.
