Going to Atlanta for the Hoedown

Gaff... you going to the Symposium?

Dan,

Yes indeed I am.

For those of you who don’t know what the heck we are talking about, Art Within – a theatre company in Atlanta, hosts a by-invitation Symposium and Showcase every year.

They gather together Christians who are playwrights or screenwriters from around the country – along with the occasional director or producer. They we discuss and debate some of the issues that effect the arts and culture, as well as how our faith plays into our craft.

We also see readings of each others work.

Last year, they commissioned six writers to develop film scripts. At this year’s symposium, we will be hearing those scripts.

It is an exhausting yet fulfilling weekend. And I can’t wait.

Just my thoughts,

Sean

Gone are the days when Luke and I could join you there for poker, over priced soup, late night sleepovers and sneaking into Dave and Buster's. Sniff....

Dan -- does this mean you won't be there? Not the same, not the same...

Stacy -- I believe we have only cyber-met. I think a link from Alice Bass, no?

Sarah -- I know. The hotel room floor naps and the underaged adventuring without alcohol; ah, I miss those days already.
