Inspire me a Story

"Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration," said Thomas Edison. But inspiration is very helpful in getting started, as well as in putting meaning to all that perspiration. And one shouldn't have to wait indefinitely for inspiration to strike! Given the right tools and exercises, a writer can either discover or make inspiration on the fly.

Inspire me a Story is a three-hour crash course that will get you writing inspired. After this course, you'll be able to willingly draw inspiration for your writing projects from sources that you might be taking for granted.

Our teacher

Inspire me a Story is taught by Dr. Joem Antonio. A published author and playwright, he holds a Ph.D. in Creative Writing from UP Diliman and is a seven-time Palanca Award winner. He believes that writing is a skill that can be learned by even those who weren't magically "born with the talent." Through his writing courses and workshops, he teaches writing as a science, leaving students with clear methods that allow them to move their writing projects forward.
