Students from all over the region are invited to sharpen their pencils and submit their works for the annual MindSprouts Creative Writing program, a part of the Mechanics Bank Education Series brought to you by the Renaissance Education Department.

Educators are also invited to participate in the MindSprouts Creative Writing program by scheduling in-class workshops for their students with Renaissance Teaching Artist Dauphne Maloney, trained by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Workshop dates are available to be scheduled through March 30th by calling 419-522-2726, ext. 212.

The annual MindSprouts Creative Writing contest invites students to submit one composition in one or more of the following categories: short story, play, or poem. This year’s contest theme is “My Epic and Awesome Life!” Top submissions from each grade band are adjudicated, then adapted for the stage and showcased at the Renaissance onstage at Theatre 166 at 7:00 pm on May 11, 2023.

All submissions to the MindSprouts contest must correspond to the theme: “My Epic and Awesome Life!” Interested students may submit individually, or students may submit one collaborative work from a group of up to three students. All submissions must be received by the Renaissance no later than April 15, 2023, to be eligible for inclusion in the contest.  Submissions will be accepted via mail and email.
