What you'll do

GET READY FOR A CREATIVE EXPERIENCE THAT WILL FOREVER CHANGE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT STORYTELLING!

This is a unique experience that will inspire you to take an idea and develop it into a story for Film, Television, a Book, or anything else you want it to be. During our 2 hour experience, we'll share creative ideas and brainstorm on how to bring your story to life. We all have a special story to tell so let's do it!

I just love writing in coffee shops around New Orleans or anywhere else in America. Hemmingway, Tennessee Williams, J.K.Rowling and many others also loved the creative vibe of coffee shops. This creative experience will motivate you to tell your story or create an original idea for whatever you can imagine.

Great storytellers take their audience on a journey and together we will embark on a creative adventure. With my experience & passion for great storytelling, I'll show you some unique ways to tell your story that will be a game changer for you. Imagine your story finally coming to life while having coffee on one of New Orleans' most famous avenues. You will be inspired by the history & culture of one of the great cities in the world and we'll have a great time too.

It's time to think outside the box and truly get creative. I can promise you that when you leave this creative experience you will be on the road to creating something special like never before!

Hi, I'm Steve Scaffidi, an award-winning writer/producer/director living in New Orleans. I'm passionate about film & storytelling, and NOLA is a great city to inspire any creative idea. Over the years, I've written many stories for film, print, stage and television. Winning awards is great but nothing is better than seeing your original idea come to life. I love what I do and I want to share my unique creative process with you that will forever change the way you look at storytelling.

This is not your ordinary writing class or workshop, but a unique creative experience that will open your eyes to the creative process, storytelling, writing and more that will get you motivated to create something special. Great creative thinkers, writers & storytellers are people who aren't afraid to blaze a new trail that few are willing to explore.

If you're a writer or have ever thought of becoming a writer..this experience is a Must! Steven has a great way of helping you discover how to tell (and write) your story. His passion and excitment for his craft is contagious, and the added creative process of writing that he teaches you will stay with you always! It was truly a treat and a pleasure.

If you're looking for a creativity guide, how to take your ideas and turn them into clear action then this experience with Steven is for you. Passionate discussion on how and why we write and clear direction, and a timeline, on taking your ideas from just a spark to a finished work in much less time than you think. I left feeling inspired and ready to get started. Thanks Steven!!

Steven is the professor you wish you had in college even though this was not like a regular writing class. He was very welcoming, engaging and personable. My wife and I enjoyed our experience and felt that he was able to give us a good perspective and understanding on how to further our own creative endeavors. You don’t have to arrive with any concrete ideas or storyline, maybe just an inkling of an idea and an open mind. Steven will ask many questions to help you put into words the story that might be swirling in your head that you don’t know how to express yet. In fact, he was like a mind reader - from our answers and how we answered some of his questions, he was able to deduce what we do for a living. The two hours we spent with Steven definitely flew by quickly.

Do you have cool ideas and want to tell a good story but just don't know where to begin? Steven’s got your back! All I expected to gain from this workshop was to learn effectively structure a story from beginning to end. But I gained so much more than that — I walked away with confidence that I can really do this! Steven not only inspired me and got me excited about writing a story that I’ve been only thinking about, but also encouraged to think big pictures. And this really was something that couldn’t be taught at a normal writing class. This workshop is perfect for people who want to be inspired in a very special way.

I really enjoyed meeting with, and learning from Steven. He was passionate and knowledgeable. I showed up not knowing what to expect and not really sure how to proceed on writing a collection of short stories that have been in my head for awhile. I left with a timeline and set of instructions, yet more importantly I left very excited to get started on my writing. I would recommend this workshop to anyone from experienced writers to people like myself who have very little experience. I cannot wait to sit down and work on my project!

My workshop with Steve was great. It went beyond my expectations. I know that his process for writing will improve my own. He explained it clearly and used great examples. He then helped me to create a realistic timeline for the completion of my novel. His enthusiasm for storytelling was infectious.
