September Patreon Online Writing Class: Creativity in All Aspects of Life with Sandra Tayler

Mary Robinette teaches classes, once a month, for her $25 Patreon supporters. The topic rotates, depending on what folks want to know about. This month’s class is tonight (Sep. 21) at 8 pm Eastern.

Due to travel shenanigans this month, Sandra Tayler will be our Guest Instructor, teaching us about Creativity in All Aspects of Life. I’ve had conversations on this topic with Sandra before, and I always come away with a better understanding.

You understand how creativity impacts your writing, but may be unaware how many other places you use your creative skills. Join Sandra Tayler as she shows us how we use creativity and problem solving in care work, in grief, in community building and the creation of a life that allows your creative processes to cross connect and provide support for each other as you move forward toward your goals.

Sandra Tayler is a writer of words, maker of books, and caretaker of many things including a small publishing business, several special needs adults, a house, a garden, three cats, and a scrub jay who comes and yells at her through the window until she supplies peanuts. Sandra also participates in multiple overlapping communities, maintaining a network of relationships that both support her and are supported by her. Through all of that she claims time to write her own projects including a middle grade novel that is forever in progress, a non-fiction book about Structuring Life to Support Creativity, and a plethora of emails and newsletters. It is a life of dynamic equilibrium where needs must be balanced against each other, but Sandra has a lot of practice with creative juggling. You can find Sandra online at or on twitter @sandratayler.
