We help writers get ideas out of their heads and on to paper.

60 SCENES® WORKSHOP

SUPPORT THROUGH THE WRITING PROCESS

Penpaperwrite is for all individuals who say “I am a writer” with gusto and pride, and sometimes with trepidation and caution. Writing is what we do in order to answer the voice in our heads-the voice telling us a story.

The writing process can be long, demanding and above all, solitary. Penpaperwrite is there to offer a kind of writing club, an inner circle of like minds to share and support writers through the journey of coming up with the most important product of their lives.

“When you understand story structure, your jumbled parts and pieces find their natural order.”

– KAREN McGOLDRICK

“Writers can complete a project with a simple set of tools,” is what the founder of PenPaperWriteTM and the 60 Scenes® Writing Method, Christina N Ranallo, tells writers.

Penpaperwrite is an Atlanta writing group started in 2008 as a place for writers to talk over ideas and maintain a continuous source of support on the way to completing a writing project. Writers of novels, short stories, screenplays, stage plays, and poetry came with bits and pieces to find fellow writers to listen and give feedback.

Two Meetups, Penpaperwrite Writers Group and Penpaperwrite Writers Group Atlanta grew out of the original group as well as workshops based on The Hero’s Journey, a topic used as a common guideline in many of the Penpaperwrite forums. The mission of this writing group has always been to see writers to “The End” of any project no matter what level of skill they may have reached.

“If you can write 60 Scenes® you can write a novel.”

– CHRISTINA N. RANALLO, FOUNDER

That’s her mantra for the one-day workshop given to over a hundred writers. Writers can sign up for a monthly newsletter with articles that give writing tips and a constant source of support for their craft. Several writers have published their work from this group and continue to come back to the Meetups in order to rally other writers and keep them on course. The same published writers will come to workshops and give writers the chance to ask questions about how they used the process successfully.

Penpaperwrite is a writer’s creative collective. It serves the writer by offering re-occurring meetings, a workshop with tools for a lifetime in one day and a community that is constantly building. Join us.

We may be coming to your city in the future. Ask about the opportunity to bring the 60 Scenes® Writing Method 1-Day Workshop to where you live. We can schedule a Saturday in your city if you have enough writers interested in attending and a viable venue. Contact us for more information.

“With the guidance, encouragement and supporting materials, along with the commitment I made to myself by joining, I was able to greatly improve my draft and have it ready for the road to publishing. (Which is every writer’s goal.) Starting work on my next book, I fully intend to take this… (course) …again.”
