Have you spent *years* dreaming about a creative project you want to tackle ‘someday’?

Do you dive head first into fun, new, creative projects only to shelve them at the first sign of difficulty or distraction?

Do you have trouble choosing how to direct your creative energy?

Do you yearn for more rich, consistent creativity in your busy life, but you can’t seem to find the time or space?

Has past criticism or old creative wounds shut down your creativity?

Are you stopped by the vampires, fears and negative stories that stand between you and your creative self expression?

Do you deliver when you are supporting someone else’s vision, but lose momentum with your own creative work?

Are you an interpretive artist who has long-desired to originate your own work, and to enjoy personal agency in your creative career?

Do you seek connection with fellow smart, inspiring, socially-intelligent creatives?

Do you thrive with accountability, structure and deadlines?



And oftentimes, it can feel easier to keep ourselves ‘safe’ by deferring our creative impulses, putting them off for ‘another day’, or dedicating our creative energy to other people's projects.

The Spark File BLAZE offers a different approach.

Within our creative 'safe space',

guided by experienced coaches,

clarify your artistic vision,
