Just as the ability to make a toast doesn’t make one a toastmaster, being able to write doesn’t make one a writer. Much of what passes for writing today is mere typing. True writers, conversely, paint pictures of the human condition, combining nouns, verbs and adjectives into bold aspirations. They see the bigger message behind the smallest acts.

Great stories illuminate something within us. They inspire us to act and react, to laugh, to cry and to think. There’s a reason why nations, including ours, still ban books. Ideas are dangerous things. Like zombies. Or Kardashians.

If you’re ready to develop your storytelling chops, Regis University is ready to help. We’re hosting our Mile High MFA Storytellers Seminar on Friday July 22, 2016 from 11:45 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Admission is free.

It’s a time when aspiring writers can find the inspiration to develop their ideas and their craft through guest speakers, workshops, networking and more. If you’re interested, visit regis.edu/storytellers.

By developing your writing skills, you’re embracing your power to move people to action. It’s a great way to make big things happen in the world – something Regis University has always believed. If you’re interested in turning your ideas into something more, stop by our Mile High MFA Storytellers Seminar or reach out to an admissions counselor. They can help you make your ideas strong enough to inspire the next generation of thinkers, doers and aspiring storytellers.
