The Art of Storytelling on Twitter

I will discuss storytelling on Twitter with my guest Alena Smith. She is a playwright and the creator of Tween Hobo, a Twitter character. Tween Hobo: Off The Rails will be published in June 2014 by Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster. Her work has been produced internationally, and her play The Bad Guys was made into an independent film. Alena lives in Los Angeles, where she is a staff writer on HBO's The Newsroom.

    Alena was an entertaining, motivating, knowledgeable, and informative guest speaker. . We were provided wonderful appetizers: Crispy Crust pizza (out of this world!), Sweetwater Spice Co.'s apple chipotle BBQ chicken (yes, it was as tasty as it sounds!) and a fresh assortment of cheese, fruit, and crackers with beverages to boot!

    Really enjoyable. It's always great to listen to a smart woman talk about creating. Plus, I'd had no idea there was twitter literature.

    hi all.....sooo disappointed/ballistic..back into bloody Cedars for surgery;much rather be with you all:) hopefully soon! Even more distraught to miss Peter's Google Glass..what a trip after surgery!

    So, Peter, if u r wandering near Cedars Wednesday onwards, would just be the coolest thing in world if u bopped up for a quickie peek. If something doesn't happen soon my next script is going to be written with guns and ammo....

    Laura Ann Tull... Just wanted you to know how very much your information has meant. My bril, silly exciting life contorted into three years of this mishapen Stephen King knockoff. Contacting your people asap: I want my life back: zany divine clothes, challenging multi-national bpr's, arguing about everything at three am with wild creatives - not this! You're the first person that's hooked me up to anything; I have no support network at all..another nightmare story! S000000- hugz and cross fingers....this is last best surgery:)

      I have not been to him in a few years. Again he may not be able to help you, but I hope he can. He saved my life as I suspect I may have some cancer again but my body is capable of fighting a cold where as before I had such bad malnutrition I could not think straight let alone fight a simple virus.

      Dr May and also Dr Rose Robinson on Overland. She was recommended to me by an actress in a show I volunteered with in 2003. She is an acupuncturist, holistic Dr and chiropractor. The woman has helped me walk twice. My legs were knocked out from under me. I can't ride a bike, But thanks to her I can ride a scooter, horse, hike.

    For the last two years, my constant-deliberate-effort is to build an audience before I release my contribution to self.

    The opening Monologue of Newsroom still blows me away. I'm already in a class that night. First love acting, working on writing a ten minute poetry performance on women and Spring. But ive always been the responsible student under it all. Next time.

      I also worked on Deadwood, Carnival, and know Amy Jo Berman, casting agent and she may not cal herself this but a true acting life coach.

    I love the idea of this meetup group -- and this first event sounds great. But I'm already committed to a Big Data event that same evening.
