StoryStudio Chicago Newsletter--Upcoming Events

Get Out Your Party Frock!

by Jill Pollack

I've always liked the fall because it offers quiet time to collect one's thoughts before the bustle of the holidays. NOT!

The studio is busier than ever and we have some great events coming up you won't want to miss.



We're in the midst of Nanowrimo of course (can you write a novel in a month?!) so we're doing another Write-a-Thon for all you stressed out novelists. Last month, the studio was packed with writers for this event featuring 12 hours of quiet time, great karma, and all the caffiene you need to be productive and get your words out. So come by on Saturday, November 22 from 9am to 9pm (and yes, you may come and go as you like).

It's open to all, 7 bucks for StoryStudio Members and 12 bucks for non-members gets you food, coffee, snacks, water, and even a manuscript review. PLUS: this month we have a special surprise for you.


Open House

We know there are folks out there with questions about upcoming classes. Please stop by the Open House on Tuesday, December 9, anytime from 4pm to 7pm to look around, ask some questions, and mingle with StoryStudio staff and instructor.

(This event is free and open to the public.)


Interior Worlds Art Opening

Writers, like every other kind of artist, need the sustenence of other art forms. We love having the changing art shows at the studio and next month we'll be unveiling some very special paintings.

We'll have a lot more information on Margaret Kennedy but really, her pictures speak for themselves. We invite you to join us for the art opening, Interior Worlds on Friday, December 5 for the unveiling of the works Margaret left at her death.

(This event is free and open to the public.)

Holiday Party

We skipped this annual bash last year so we have some time to make up for! Join us on Wednesday, December 10 from 6pm to 10pm to catch up with old friends and make some new ones. (This event is free and open to the public.)
