Even though I know how to write and I even have a degree in Creative Writing, when I began work on my novel, Camelot & Vine, I still had a lot to learn. A novel is a big project! But over time I've come up with some methods that can help other writers streamline the process.
Most people know how to write good sentences and paragraphs. But longer forms, like a screenplay or a book of fiction or nonfiction, are harder to piece together. At the Story Kitchen I'll help you organize it all—the scene ideas, themes and characters that have been running around in your head—into the whole story. Your story. I can't tell you what to write. But I can help you write the story you want to tell.
A kitchen is a cozy place where people gather to talk, enjoy the warmth of the stove, and have a cup of tea. The Story Kitchen is cozy, too, a safe place to work on your story with people whose goals align with yours. Class size is small, so everyone's work gets a lot of attention, every time.
