Write Now Party

You've gone through the experience of building a story during a Storywriting School workshop. However, some of our past students have told us that they'd like to get a lot of writing done in a similar atmosphere: focused, timed, and in the company of other writers. So, we came up with what we call a Write Now Party. It's simply a writing marathon that's based on the story building principles taught by Dr. Joem Antonio.

Storywriting School students from 2016 and later have gone through the process during our workshops, but the Write Now Party is six full hours of building a story (plus an hour for the lunch break) from start to zero draft. You'll go through the whole pre-writing stage. You can come in with a story concept, or you can explore your options during the Write Now Party. You'll also go through the writing stage. If you intend to write shorter material like short stories or ten-minute plays, you'll likely get the material done within the day. Longer material like novels or full-length plays will obviously not be done within that day, but you'll probably cover all the beats.

Want to master the writing process or to simply make progress in your story? If so, we invite you to join a Write Now Party.
