Next Show! 1,000 Words!

Everyone knows that a picture is worth 1,000 words, but this month Storytime PROVES it! That's because this month we are writing 1,000 word stories in conjunction with pictures that are important to the writers!

Meaning: The writers will bring in pictures, that you will see, and they will write a 1,000 word story explaining that picture! 1,000 exactly! This is a very cool, smart experiment, and you will totally love seeing what these creative writers do with 1,000 words!

The four writers are: Timothy Cooper, David Serchuk (me), Kristina Sepulveda and Becky Yamamoto!

Some bios:
Kristina Sepulveda is a big dreamer and heavy sleeper. She has performed acts of hilarity at Magnet Theater, Chicks and Giggles, People's Improv Theater, and the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Before performing, she did politics, and before that, she did poetry on various stages in Orlando and in studies at Florida State University. She looks forward to her next pursuit to being completely unrelated from the last.

Timothy Cooper works as a playwright, screenwriter, humorist, and restaurant critic, sometimes combining those four occupations in weird ways. He also does lots of script doctoring.

Some work of his you might have actually seen includes the comedy short THE CHOCOLATEER; a chapter of the feature film REALIZATION, which recently premiered in Chicago; the family musical SCOTCH & POISON, performed last year on the Frying Pan at Chelsea Piers; and SAVIOUR, a documentary drama that’s had readings at The New Group and The Culture Project. He is currently in post-production for the comedy food pilot SERVED.
