Let your inner storyteller out to play!
Once upon a time . . . there was a child who loved stories. One day the child came upon a path that meandered along a winding river before turning sharply into the dark forest. Even though night was falling quickly, the child bravely entered the woods and was surprised to find it alive and teeming with nighttime activity. Here was a big black bear telling a bedtime story to a rambunctious group of young red foxes. There in the thicket was a gentle deer singing a soft lullaby to her best friend, a long-eared rabbit; and up in the tallest tall tree an old owl was deep in conversation with a sleepy redheaded woodpecker. Just ahead, the child could see the end of the path, where the dark woods opened into a clearing and there in the moonlight sat The Storyteller, beckoning . . .
The storyteller archetype lives in all of us. Whether you are a writer, dream about being a writer, want to write books, stories, songs, or poems; whether you are an obsessed journaler or have never written more than a page of text in your life; whether you believe you are a storyteller (or not), believe you’re creative (or not), or believe you have an active imagination (or not), the truth is, you are, you can, you do. The secret is to find The Write Path . . . and then follow it.
So, come join us for some creative wordplay and exploration along the The Write Path. No previous writing experience is needed, just a desire to meet your inner storyteller and have fun with the written word.
