Do you jot down snatches of overheard conversations and pieces of dreams? Do you tear off doodles from your school notebooks, hoping to turn them into stories and songs someday?

But maybe people have told you that you can’t write, OR you've felt scared about making your ideas real, OR you’ve struggled to put words on the page. (OR all of the above and more).

I have news for you: you’re already a storyteller. With fun writing exercises, we’ll find inspiration for weird and strange stories in familiar homes, rooms, books and songs. This workshop will help you shake off creative blocks, spark new ideas for stories and set them blazing on the page. Bring lots of paper. You’re going to fill it up with your creative brilliance.

About the facilitator: Roohi Choudhry is a storyteller who grew up in Pakistan, southern Africa and the middle east. She teaches fiction and memoir here in New York. Read her writing and learn more at
