We are so excited that Matt Derby will be teaching a class for Frequency. Please join us on Saturday!

FFFFound: Chance as Storytelling STUDIO

In this class, we’ll look at how randomness can help you generate new story ideas and open up new possibilities for stories-in-progress. All beginners welcomed. Studios are geared towards drafting new work. The pieces you’ll be drafting will be about, or inspired by, select readings that the instructor will share with you. Come ready to read and discuss a little bit, and to write a lot.
Saturday, May 12th, 10 am – 2 pm at 186 Carpenter Street, Providence, RI
