Each week, we'll focus on a different storytelling technique, look at how other pros have done it, and play around with how to do it.

Some of the upcoming themes, that can apply to any project in fiction, non-fiction, web, marketing, or personal storytelling are:

  • What makes a character?
  • Diabolical Dialogue
  • Point of View: Where's the lens?
  • Gems inside that awkward idea or line
  • Story Structure--How do we drive a story to be a MUST for our audience, to tell our meaningful tales (or find the meaning)?
  • It's all about Sin & Syntax
  • Plotter vs. Pantser 

    We'll always start with the quintessential ?: what makes a good--what makes our--story?

    We'll talk tricks of the trade to write better, rework stuck ideas, and allow your writing talent and voice--in any form.

    We know you've stories to tell and we're here to help that voice find its way. Learning ways to tell those stories--how to give them shape--helps many writers build that great work.

      As always, it's much fun. Just ask past students. 

    Led by dynamic teacher, coach, & seasoned local storyteller Nancy Taylor (N.T. Arévalo), these classes provide the camaraderie and creative play all writers need.

Taken from the pros in many story fields, it's a great bang-for-the-buck. (Learn more about the teacher here.) Each week focuses on a deep theme in a fun interactive class.
