Agile Storytellers of Baltimore
Agile Storytellers of Baltimore is an active community of warmhearted, offbeat, creative, and focused writers. We value continual learning, growth, innovation, and finishing the freaking story.
Founded in August 2021, Agile Storytellers is primarily composed of novelists and screenwriters. Any storyteller who is looking for a community and thinks they would benefit from our structure is welcome to join.
Weekly Writing Blitzes
Writing Blitz: A two-hour writing intensive comprised of a series of 20-minute writing sprints and 10-minute breaks.
We begin with (very) short summaries of what each person is working on that day, followed by a 20-minute writing sprint, then a 10-minute movement / conversation break. The sprints and breaks are repeated (usually four times) until we hit the 2-hour mark. Writers often stick around after the blitz to connect, discuss their stories, and banter about life.
Blitzes are most beneficial to writers who have a specific project they’re already working on and who need a focused space to simply sit down and do the work. It’s also a great way to meet and connect with other writers.

Monthly Writers Collective
Writers Collective: An informal gathering that features a presentation or facilitated time of learning/play, followed by open space for socializing and/or working together on a collective project.
Our monthly writers collectives are on hiatus for the summer. They will resume in September.

Scrum Team Intensives
Scrum Team Intensives help you visualize and build the skeleton of your story over the course of 30 days. We do this by using several scrum and agile practices common in the tech industry. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with and learn from other writers on their own growth journeys. You’ll also learn skills for identifying and addressing barriers to your own writing practice.
