MANSFIELD, OH - Beginning in November, the Renaissance Education Department will continue its annual MindSprouts Creative Writing program for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.  K-12 teachers are invited to schedule a free in-class writing workshop with Renaissance Teaching Artist Dauphne Maloney. Workshops can be scheduled for any date through March 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 “Fantastic Fables!” Top submissions from each grade band in the MindSprouts contest are sent to a celebrity panel for judging, then adapted for the stage and showcased at the Renaissance in May. Past judges for the contest have included SNL writers Tina Fey, Rachel Dratch, Jeff Richmond, and the Ren's own Artistic Director, Michael Thomas.

All submissions to the MindSprouts contest must correspond to the theme: “Fantastic Fables!” 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 March 30, 2018 to be eligible for inclusion in the contest.  Submissions will be accepted via mail and email. Submissions should be mailed to: Chelsie Thompson, Renaissance Education, 138 Park Avenue West, Mansfield, OH 44902. Email submissions can be sent here.
