Ignite your creative spirit!

Seeking Stories

Do you have an interesting story to tell about someone in your family?  Maybe it’s about a quirky aunt who taught you a life lesson, a long-lost (or never known) relative with whom you’ve re-connected, or a discovery that would amuse or astound!

The Clear Lake Arts Center and Central Gardens of North Iowa are co-hosting an Art of the Story event on April 25, beginning at 6:30 PM. This free-to-the-public event will feature stories around the theme: Families and Other Mysteries: Quirky Stories of Intrigue, Resilience, and Redemption.

The deadline for applications is February 29.  The Art of the Story promises to be a fun and inspirational evening.  So, let’s tell your story!

Use this link to submit your story for consideration.
