Greenroom Writers Workshop @ SDPL: “Too Good To Be True”

GreenRoom

We all want to believe that we’ve found something perfect, but usually we neglect to read the fine print. Let’s talk and write about those times when reality has shown us how delusional we really are.

This GreenRoom Writing Workshop will be a primer to help generate ideas for our September VAMP showcase “Trouble in Paradise”.

GreenRoom Writing Workshop: Scapegoats

We all know (or have been) that poor schmuck who takes the blame and puts up with the harassment for no other reason then the crowd says he has to. Let’s talk and write about those times when one person has to be the fall guy.

(Optional viewing: this GreenRoom was partially inspired by the amazing documentary “Catching Hell”, part of ESPN’s “30 For 30″ series. It’s on Netflix, runs about an hour, and is awesome.)

This GreenRoom Writing Workshop will be a primer to help generate ideas for our October VAMP showcase “Mob Rules”.

GreenRoom Writing Workshop, “None of us is as Dumb as All of us”

The Borg. Cults. Board meetings.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. You said yes. And then suddenly, there was kool-aid being passed around and you thought, “Wait a minute…”

Whether you were talked into it or realized it was happening too late, let’s explore what happens when you realize the hive mind isn’t as smart as you thought it was.

This GreenRoom Writing Workshop will be a primer to help generate ideas for our October VAMP showcase “Mob Rules”.

GreenRoom Writing Workshop: “Hello, Darkness, My Old Friend”

Autumn. It’s not all pumpkin spice lattes and foliage. It’s a time when shorter days give way to colder nights and everyone starts to feel the creepy, not-entirely-unpleasant tingles of Halloween. In this workshop, let’s talk and write about those times that we have looked into the darkness and saw something familiar.

This GreenRoom Writing Workshop will be a primer to help generate ideas for anybody who has lived or tried to write a scary story.

Greenroom writers workshop: “Obsessed!”

March’s free writers workshop focuses on the concept of obsession, whether that’s the brand known by fanboys, or when the thought of letting go is more painful than holding on, and the many problematic places that takes us. Writing will commence there, and anyone who wants to workshop a piece is free to bring one in.
