While coaching storytellers at Odyssey Storytelling, I came to understand that people create stories in many different ways. Some hear what they want to say in their heads and then tell their stories. Some need structure and these are the folks who use an outline to organize their thought before they share the story. And then there are the writers who needed to write out the complete story first. Since storytelling is “off the page,” meaning not read and no notes, the writing is a means to the end.
All of these, and some combinations of them, are valid and useful ways to prepare stories to tell. For the people who are writers (and the ones who want to be writers) there is a new venue in Tucson to help you hone your craft.
If you think you are “too busy” to find a few hours a week to do some creative writing, banish that thought and come to THE WRITERS’ TABLE, a relaxed and supportive space for 2-hours of peaceful uninterrupted writing in the presence of other respectful writers. No cell phones, no distractions, just silence, you and your imagination.
We will meet every other Tuesday beginning July 2. Come at 6:15 p.m. to chat; quiet work time begins promptly at 6:30 and goes until 8:30. Bring your laptop, notebook, pen and paper, whatever works for you. Wifi is available. You can work on any writing project you like, we will not be sharing our writing with each other.
This is an open group, anyone can join as long as there is space at the table. There is no charge. Contact us to make your reservation. Make a commitment to yourself and to your writing process!
The Writers’ Table at Gangplank Tucson, 17 E. Pennington Street.
Free parking on the street and in the library garage after 5 p.m.
