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.

They’re going to take advantage of it.

SSWA first times

May VAMP: “First Times”

So many things can only happen once, and we’re talking all about them, broadly interpreted in intimate detail.

A highly produced multimedia variety show, the VAMP (Visual Art, Music, Performance) Showcase presents pre-booked artists and their workshopped material in a polished monthly show. Artist involvement is managed by commission or submission, all pieces are given a free workshop to further improve the material, and then the final product is curated in a featured capacity. Currently hosted at The Whistle Stop bar in Southpark, VAMP has drawn SSWA’s largest crowds and press, one publication of which likened it to “This American Life without begging for money.”

Featuring:

  • Dave Maass
  • Andrew Printer
  • Joni Redmond
  • Haley Christopher
  • Allen Clark
  • Mindy Solis
  • Ryan Bradford
  • Pat Johnson
  • Ugly Boogie!
