The lessons offered at Storm Writing School combine probing study of story craft with expert teaching to deliver clear explanations and original paradigms that you won't find anywhere else.

Writing Craft Club
The Writing Craft Club is an inquiry-based, rules-averse exploration of craft. We investigate a new topic each month, assemble a reading packet based on that topic, and then get together to discuss and draw lessons.
