We can make our creative communities better. Take the 2023 pledge.

Being a successful storyteller in 2023 means being much more than "just" a writer.

You also have to be:

  • Super organized
  • Efficient with your time
  • Awesome at setting and meeting deadlines
  • Knowledgeable about grammar and writing "rules"
  • Good at research and self-learning
  • Great at networking to make those important connections
    ... just to name a few things! No pressure, right?

Our courses are designed to help you tackle every aspect of your creative life so that you can achieve those dreams that fill your head and your heart. Every creative person needs someone in their corner cheering them on. Our community can do that for you, as it has for the 12,000+ people around the world who have gone through our programs.

RPG Writer Workshop

The RPG Writer Workshop is our flagship program. Narrative and game design encompasses all that we love about storytelling: creating immersive, participatory, and communal stories.

The RPG Writer Workshop logo has the words RPG Writer Workshop in a circle. In the center of the circle is the tip of a fountain pen.

RPG Writer Workshop Participant

Joining the RPG Writer Workshop has been the most fulfilling and welcoming experience that I've had in a long time. The connections and friends made, the knowledge gained and the confidence I have has grown. I've gone from being unpublished (and no writing projects), to 2 adventures, 3 supplements, a few collaborative projects, as well as charity bundles in just 7 months. I highly recommend joining the discord and the courses whenever possible. They've proven invaluable for getting my foot in the door and learning how to be a TTRPG writer.

The RPGWW is not only a fantastic little community, it's also a powerhouse of project management for first-time TTRPG writers. Even if you're an experienced writer or illustrator, the RPGWW framework is a great new way to think about a module from start to finish. Best part about the community? You have baked in real-time access to peers and resources to make your debut into the TTRPG scene. Bonus: You'll still have them when you stick around after you publish module #1. I'm very pleased with how much I've been able to get done since I joined.

The Write Your First Adventure workshop gave me the tools, motivation, and communal resources to publish my first TRPG adventure. The importance of having a defined goal every day cannot be overstated. This course will make you a better author and a better game master, guaranteed.

The RPG Writer Workshop is the perfect starting point for writers breaking into the tabletop industry. The structure of the course provides a strong foundation for developing each individual's method for writing TTRPG material, while the encouraging instructors and fellow students offer something even more important: community. Crafting my first adventure for the DMs Guild, "False Profits," as part of the July 2020 RPG Writer Workshop was a transformative experience for me as a new independent TTRPG writer. I can't recommend it enough!

Your storytelling adventures await!
