Small group of writers dedicated to mastering the craft of storytelling set forth in John Truby's 22 principles of storycraft. Goal is twofold: (a) to collaborate on achieving breakthroughs for works in progress, helping each other "dig out the gold that's buried in the idea"; and (b) to codify practices and/or exercises based on Truby's 22 principles that will help fellow writers master the art of telling a great story.
