Stories matter more than ever in these challenging times.

The Blue Sage StoryFest writing symposium will livestream June 26 and 27. Participants will be able to access all workshops through this new online event.
Award-winning authors Craig Childs and Amy Irvine share tales and inspire StoryFest participants to mold their own narratives. On Friday the 26th Childs presents the keynote address opening the literary symposium, now in a virtual format in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The two join forces to offer a 3-hour Zoom workshop on Saturday June 27 titled Maelstrom and Epiphany, an opportunity for writers of all stripes to learn from two masters of the craft.
Irvine and Childs, who have taught together for more than a decade, will reveal how to take the emotional and structural chaos of narrative and turn it into an elegant, readable form. This will be a crash course workshop in story writing, fiction or nonfiction, boiling down writing to its core elements, from the nature of your story to the rhythm of its sentences and paragraphs. Be prepared to write!
