Body, Mind, Spirit Workshop

Fire Station 14, 1875 Dublin Blvd,

(Dublin & Academy)

Grant McKenzie (aka Kilted Writer) began developing his hobby of writing fiction and poetry into a lifetime pursuit in 2004. Studying the craft, he began to see trends in what works and what doesn't when it comes to creating a great story. As he identified these trends, he decided to use his experience creating and teaching workshops to help other writers develop their craft.

One trend Grant identified was the use of mind, body, and spirit symbolism in character development and world building. Successful fiction from the Babylonian epic of "Gilgamesh" to Alexandre Dumas' "The Three Musketeers" to modern works, as well as TV shows and movies, have all included this symbolism. Understanding what it is and how to use it helps you, as a writer, engage and captivate your readers.

The Colorado Springs Fiction Writer's Group is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that welcomes writers of all levels to improve their skills through peer critique groups, workshops, and retreats in a supportive setting. All meetings are free and open to the public.
