After working as a television producer in Los Angeles for over fifteen years, Stephanie Storey used her Hollywood storytelling skills to turn her debut novel, Oil and Marble, into a runaway hit, garnering a glowing New York Times review, hitting the Los Angeles Times bestseller list, and selling out of her first printing within the first week of publication. Now, a Los Angeles-based production company is turning her art historical thriller into a feature film.

In this creative writing workshop, you will learn techniques from screenwriting, filmmaking, and acting that will take your writing to the next level. These lessons will show you how to find and stay true to your unique voice; create compelling characters, scenes, and dialogue; and entertain your audience, ensuring that they keep turning those pages.

Stephanie Storey’s debut novel, Oil and Marble: a novel of Leonardo and Michelangelo (Arcade Publishing) was released on March 1, 2016 and quickly became a Los Angeles Times bestseller. The New York Times called it “tremendously entertaining,” and Hudson Booksellers named Oil and Marble as one of the Best Books of 2016. Storey is also an award-winning national television producer for shows like Tavis Smiley on PBS, The Arsenio Hall Show for CBS, and The Writers’ Room for the Sundance Channel. She has her degree in Fine Arts from Vanderbilt University and attended a PhD program in Art History—before leaving to get her MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College. She has studied art in Italy and been on a pilgrimage to see every Michelangelo on display in Europe. When not writing novels, she can usually be found traveling the world — with her husband, an actor and Emmy-winning comedy writer — in search of her next story.
