Everybody has stories.
No matter what your prior experience is, no matter if you intend to submit a story to us or craft it for your own creative satisfaction, we’ve got a class or workshop sure to shake up your imaginative process.

About the Process.
We don’t just sit at our computers and churn this stuff out, and we don’t expect anybody else to create stories that way either. Our creative process involves group collaboration, feedback, and exploration. Collaboration is integral to our process not just because it feels good (which it does!) but also because it works.
Our classes draw upon the various backgrounds and skill sets that are present in the room. It’s important to us that we meet each student where they are at, and we honor the expertise in the room. Each individual brings a different set of experiences to the room, and each viewpoint brings a different voice to the table.
We specialize in creative non-fiction and personal narrative, crafting intimate stories that are close to our hearts. We realize that everyone in the room has a different reason for being there, and we do our best to create an atmosphere where people feel safe enough to dig deep, and achieve their own writing goals.
In order to reduce financial barriers, every season 2nd Story offers full and partial scholarships for its classes and workshops. Interested in a scholarship? Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details!
