The Spark is WMRA's own creative look at --well-- creativity. We dig into whatever people are passionate about in the WMRA region: sculpture, model railroading, costume-making, poetry, whatever.
Please note that while we no longer produce The Spark as a full-length program (due to Martha Woodroof's retirement), her interviews continue to appear within our Friday broadcast of All Things Considered.
We want to hear from those who are doing artsy or interesting or wonderful or obsessive things. We also recognize that lots of creatives are a tad shy and might not ever speak up for themselves.
You can put something on our radar about yourself or can tell us about someone you know of who might be interesting by sending an e-mail to the show host, Martha Woodroof:

Consider this a community-wide celebration of the many people among us who invest time, energy and discipline into pushing against life's boundaries.

2013 Spark intern Julia Skinner has been tasked with blogging about potentially Spark-worthy peers, and you can find the link to that blog on this page.
