“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on,”  country author Louis L’Amour said.

Blurb is a writing workshop that promotes inspiration through themes and key words.  This year, Blurb took place on 13 December.

The theme surrounding Blurb was the  journey one faces throughout life. These annual writing workshops help aid the creation of Artifact, a fine art and literary magazine.

“Being one of the head editors for Artifact, Blurb allows the discovery of writers who may not have normally spoken up to display their work. Blurb’s environment is very calming to attendees and really provokes a thought-producing vibe. Blurb’s theme really gets you thinking,” senior Addison Procak said.

At this year’s Blurb, attendees were greeted at the door with a low-light setting and thoughtful music. Multiple tables with writing prompts, and thought-inducing props were also on display.  

Many students and teachers attended Blurb.

“Because of the various creation stations, everyone has the chance of finding at least one that can motivate and inspire them to create some form of writing,” English teacher Mrs. Sarah Wilkinson said.

“Blurb gets people to think in ways that one usually wouldn’t think,” Senior Grace Hess said.

Blurb writing submissions serve as Artifact contenders. Artifact, a fine literary and art magazine, comes out every year and features Fleetwood Area High School student’s work.
