Class and Workshop Schedule

Have you ever sat in our audience and thought, “I could totally do that!”? Well, we think so, too. 2nd Story offers a schedule of classes and workshops designed to teach people our particular style of creating stories. Our classes cover all aspects of how we do what we do: story generation, writing, editing, performance technique – and all of the instruction is infused with our collaborative, ensemble-based method.

Whatever your reasons for taking a class with us, we’re here to help you grow your skills and have a great experience.

Thanks to a legacy gift from Theatre Seven, we are able to offer a substantial number of full and partial scholarships for our classes and workshops this season!  Removing financial barriers for people interested in our work is important to us. Contact us so we can figure out together what could work for you. Email

A Great Way to Experience the Process - 6 Week Class

The goal of this six-week class is to lead participants through our entire process, from story conception to fully realized performance, culminating in a simply produced 2nd Story style evening of stories in our studio space. Great for more seasoned writers who are not afraid of a deadline.

$300 ($225 for Students and Seniors)

Participants limited to 10

Summer Intensive Writing Workshop

Two full days of writing and performance!

Now, by “intensive” we don’t mean advanced or exclusive. Imagine a weekend of nothing but writing, renewal, and immersion in the first person narrative storytelling form. We’ll start off with brainstorming exercises designed to help you mine your own life for story possibilities, and then spend time bringing a brand new piece of work to life through writing, feedback and performance techniques designed to bring dimension and theatricality to your story. You’ll get one-on-one feedback from our instructors, group feedback from the workshop ensemble, and you’ll leave with a sparkling new piece ready to share with an audience.

The workshop culminates in a 2nd Story style “sharing” or casual performance in our studio space for a few family, friends and members of the 2nd Story Collective, at 6:30pm on Sunday.

$240 ($200 for Students and Seniors)

If the tuition is a concern, please don’t let that prohibit you from considering the workshop! Scholarships are available, so please contact us so we can figure out together what could work for you. Email
