Free Your Creativity

The Muses are archetypal figures who inspire creative arts.

Creativity has many aspects: we use creativity to create beauty, and to see beauty in the people and the world around us; to create imaginary worlds of fiction, and to envision change in our lives and our world; to put old knowledge together in new ways, and create new sciences and philosophies; to learn new things, and to teach new things.

"The Arts" are not just graphic arts such as painting and sculpture, not just music or dance or poetry or story-making, but science and engineering and carpentry and raising children and every other aspect of our lives — when done with attention and creativity.

Muse101 gives you resources to develop your own creativity in poetry, humor and other writing, in web design and other use of the Internet; forums for exploring your creativity and supporting and encouraging each other's; and an introduction to a great wide Web of generous and creative souls.

We make our world.
