A NIGHT OF SYLLABLES
Join Syllble Studios and numerous other creatives in the DC area as we make space -- at PEN America’s place at the MAKE Office coworking space downtown -- for our creative minds to collectively flourish! If you sleep and breathe storytelling and are ready to take your writing to the next level, this is the group for you. Sign up and surprise yourself with how much forward momentum you can achieve in just a two-hour writing session.
If you are a reader, a creative or someone who thinks a lot of ideas, this is for you too! A big part of this collaborative evening is you creating a fictional universe with others and you writing individual stories through that world!
Have an idea in your head you’d like to get started on? Pitch it and share it with others in the group, gain feedback from them, and get started building your world.
In this group you will:
- Connect with other talented writers
- Push yourself and others to produce excellent work
- Sharpen your characters, plot lines and themes with the aid of other writers’ perspectives
- Give honest, tangible feedback
- Laugh and enjoy the writing process collaboratively
Here are some testimonials from previous attendees:
“I’ve never collaborated like this before! It opened my mind to new directions of stories. I had so much fun.” – Tonya
“Working with other creatives strengthened my creative flow.” – Crystal
“The brainstorming of ideas collaboratively was extremely valuable, because I have trouble with my forming strong ideas on my own.” – Allen
“I enjoyed sharing my struggles in writing with others and being truly heard.” – Jess
We will have beer on tap, as well as some snacks and soft drinks available while you work!
This writer’s group will be meeting bi-weekly and there's a limited number of tickets available, so if you can’t make this one, we hope to see you at the next!
Additionally, get familiarized with this collaborative process as we lead up to our Spring 2020 Creative Writing Weekend. Over the span of 48 hours – Friday afternoon, a full day Saturday, and Sunday morning – you will get the chance to truly indulge in your creative passions! We will be bringing together top DC writers, local universities, DC creatives in other art forms, as well as some of the DMV area’s premier authors and PEN America members. Get a chance to meet and be mentored by established writers and partner with talent in other domains outside of writing. Up to 40 writers will be accepted into the weekend, so be on the lookout for applications and further details coming soon.
