Southern songwriter Minton Sparks appeared Wednesday evening (March 25, 2015) at Germanna Community College’s Fredericksburg Area Campus. The Tennessee native is known for her “perfectly crafted vignettes (that) celebrate both woes and triumphs of unforgettable, small-town Southerners, especially women,” according to a recent newspaper article.

Every one of us has a story about who we are. Some are wildly inspiring; other times, they are the very things that hold us back. This worksop offers you an opportunity to better discover who you are through exploring and listening deeply to your own story.

Participants will focus on the questions “Where am I from?” and “How does where I’m from inform who I am?” while writing your own stories and exploring your family tree. You’ll also study storytelling techniques and learn from Minton’s own work and experience. She will guide you through using your stories to create poems, pictures and performances. No writing or performance experience necessary.

Check-out her performance later in the day.
