Meet Diana Osberg

DianaOsbergSmallI’m Diana Osberg, owner and founder of Mia Terra Retreats. It seems that I was destined to be a storyteller, writer and healer. At four years old, I stepped on stage for the first time and performed the story of “Alice in Wonderland.” I played all the characters, using different voices, and got a standing ovation from my audience. At the age of five, I began to tell stories as a guest artist on a radio show called “The Children’s Corner.” Learn More.


I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful workshop on the Visual Mindscape in screenwriting. I am already putting your teaching to use on the second draft of my screenplay ‘Swimming In December’. It has changed the whole tone and feel of the piece for the better. The information you presented in your workshop cracked open my whole concept of what a screenplay is and what it could be. The practical writing tools and devices you shared were extremely helpful. I enjoyed the day. It was intense getting all of that information at once but boy am I glad I did.
