Unleash those thoughts deep inside you often lose in the haze of daily minutiae, any anxiety or fatigue of dealing with the uncertainty of these current times. Pull out the memories that make for a scintillating memoir or make the historical facts of your family history interesting for the grandchildren. Enjoy the support of other writers on varied and intersecting paths of their writing experience to plant your words on the screen or page. You are not alone in the urge to write. Shawn Coyne, author of The Story Grid says, “Whether you know it or not, your desire to write comes from the urge to not just be “creative,” it’s a need (one every human being on earth has) to help others. A well-told Story is a gift to the reader/listener/viewer.” Her students say Rusti excels at creating a safe and supportive place where people are inspired to find the power in words. Please come prepared to write.
