Writing Wild and True Presents: From Spark to Story

Join me and fellow writer and creative coach Terry Price as we teach a nine-hour, two-day workshop in one of my favorite places on earth, Nashville.  The workshop will be held on Friday, May 1, from 6:30 to 9:30, and Saturday, May 2, 9:30 to 5:30 (with a long lunch break to give you time to write). The workshop will be held at the gorgeous Scarritt-Bennett center, which features delightful grounds and a central location near coffee shops and restaurants galore.

Here are the details:

Do you have an idea for a story that you’re yearning to get onto the page?  Or maybe you’re well into a writing project but you’re stalled?  We can help!  Join us May 1-2 at the lovely Scarritt-Bennett Center in Nashville for a two-day, nine hour workshop that will spark your imagination, fire up your writing practice, and burn writer’s block to ashes!

From Spark to Story Workshop is just that – Like flint against steel, our workshop is designed to spark your imagination into inspiration. Then we’ll teach you tools and techniques to help fuel the sparks to ignition. We’ll send you home with ideas and practices to keep the embers burning through the creative process.

From Spark to Story Workshop is a presentation of Writing Wild and True, a creative venture by writers and creative coaches, Charlotte Rains Dixon and Terry Price, both former program directors for The Writer’s Loft at Middle Tennessee State University (now MTSU Write.)
