An Experiment in Creativity
BY DAGMAR STANSOVA
@ VOL 20
ON SEP 14, 2018
As a screenwriter, poet and script doctor Dagmar Stansova wanted to improve her writing, to free up her mind and she thought a great way to do that would be to do something about which she has no preconceived notions or training. Dagmar chose painting. She will share twenty paintings and one of the poems that came out of her Experiment In Creativity. Her hope is to inspire others to do something they’ve never done before. The poem is called “Laundry Day” in memory of her father.
