Creativity is not a talent you’re born with or an exclusive club you have to join. It’s not about having one BIG idea, or polishing ideas until they’re absolutely perfect. In this talk, Gabriela Pereira shows how you can unleash your creativity, both in spurts of artistic brilliance, and in those ordinary moments of everyday life. Gabriela Pereira is a writer, speaker, and entrepreneur who wants to challenge the status quo of higher education. As the founder and instigator of DIYMFA.com, her mission is to empower writers, artists and other creatives to take an entrepreneurial approach to their professional growth. Gabriela earned her MFA in creative writing from The New School and teaches at national conferences, regional workshops, and online. She is also the host of DIY MFA Radio, a popular podcast where she interviews bestselling authors and she is the author of the book DIY MFA: WRITE WITH FOCUS, READ WITH PURPOSE, BUILD YOUR COMMUNITY (Writer’s Digest Books, 2016). This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
