The Grotto is a working community for practitioners of the narrative arts: writers, filmmakers, radio/TV producers, new media creators and others.
The Grotto is an ongoing experiment, running for over twenty years and still going strong. The hypothesis is that working writers and other storytellers will be more productive (and have more courage to pursue the work they really want to do) if they work in a community — if they surround themselves with others pursuing this same vague ambition. The narrative artists at the Grotto are not united by anything more than that — not by any school of thought, or style, or genre. Our differences rub off on each other, informally, and we grow into talents we didn’t even know we had.
