“Create Your Story"

Writing Workshop with Minton Sparks


Every one of us has a story about who we are. Some are wildly inspiring; other times, they are the very things that hold us back.  Minton believes that tremendous value lies in locating yourself within a particular time and place in history.  After all, many wonderful artistic pursuits are born out of autobiographies. This workshop offers you an opportunity to better discover who you are through exploring and listening deeply to your own story.

The retreat runs from Friday at 6 p.m. to Sunday at 1 p.m. with various topics and activities throughout the weekend. Friday evening we discover the people and place you come from and how that place impacts the art of writing. Saturday morning we will look at all the various languages we speak and how to use that potent tool in our writing. Saturday afternoon we will focus on the topic "The Unlived Life". Sunday morning yoga will be offered before we begin to perform our work in a very nurturing environment.

No writing or performance experience necessary.
