The Tinderbox:
A Creativity Experience

"I attended The Tinderbox workshop with the goal of generating new work.  As a published poet who has participated in many weeklong workshops, I was not expecting to break new ground here.  I was pleasantly surprised. Tyler’s calm and confident demeanor provided an excellent guide into relaxation and reflective thought.  Coupled with the interesting writings he read to us and his non-judgmental approach, I found I was able to write freely from a deeper and more honest place than usual.  A new door to a well of creativity was shown to me – now my goal is to open it on my own.  I highly recommend this workshop to anyone who likes to write and/or is interested in the creative process."
-Marian Willmott, MFA


“I love Tyler’s holistic approach to writing. It allowed me to tap into a deep place inside and create something from this place that was profound and touching for me.  Thank you, I’ll be back for more.”
Erik Hanzen, Participant

"I was truly surprised and moved- even brought to tears by the 
experience. Tyler's clarity brought forward an unexpected surprise in me... 
I discovered that everyone is a writer, a poet!  I really do hope everyone gets a chance to taste what I did."
Hayley Rothenberg, Participant

“I highly recommend The Tinderbox: A Creativity Experience, created and presented by Tyler Enfield. I believe this workshop to be of the highest quality, and one which inspires students to write freely without all the structures that often stifle creativity. This is an outstanding educational workshop not to be overlooked.”
-Mrs. L. Charrois, Principal, Good Shepherd School


“In my many years of clinical practice, teaching, collaboration and offering seminars/workshops in academic, community based and private work to a spectrum of people, I find Tyler Enfield’s Wrush: The Secret Worlds of Tabetha Bright and his creativity workshop, The Tinderbox to be among the richest and most promising of projects.”
-Pearl Mindell, M.S.W., Former Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Albany Medical Center, Albany, New York,    Certified Jungian Analyst


“In reading Book One of The Secret Worlds of Tabetha Bright, recipient of the 2008 Writers’ Federation of New Brunswick Literary Prize, I came to the conclusion that such works are needed for children facing challenges and that I wished to lend my name in supporting its advancement, and that of its accompanying workshops.”
- Linda Sloan, Councilor, City of Edmonton

“I came away [from The Tinderbox] re-energized, full of fresh enthusiasm for ongoing projects as well as ideas for some new undertakings… a very valuable experience and one I can’t help but think would be a wonderful addition to any children’s program.”
-S.E. Ingraham, Board of Directors, Edmonton Stroll of Poets
