Every Wednesday at Seabury Hall!

Drop in to Wednesday Writing Workshops! 


 Join us for tricks of the trade to write better, navigate publishing, 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. Led by dynamic teacher, coach, & seasoned local storyteller Nancy Taylor (N.T. Arévalo), Wed. Writing Workshops provide the camaraderie and creative play all writers need.     

Each week, we'll focus on a different storytelling technique, look at how other pros have done it, and get drafting.

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

  • 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 

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

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.
