Tech Executive-Turned-International Award-Winning Author Ara Grigorian Hosts Workshop at The San Fernando Valley Chapter of The California Writers Club’s Meeting

Ara Grigorian, the author of the international award-winning books, Game of Love and Ten Year Dance, will lead a two-hour workshop on Saturday, February 1, at the February meeting of The San Fernando Valley Chapter of the California Writers Club. The event begins at 1 p.m. and ends at 4 p.m. at the Motion Picture and TV Fund, 23388 Mulholland Drive, in the Saban Community Room. Cost for attending this workshop is $20 per person.

Grigorian regularly leads workshops at writers conferences and works as a technology executive in the entertainment industry where he “defines, leads, and executes technical strategies that solve real problems, with a focused eye on the future and the evolution of organizations.” He is also a public speaker, and his novels center around “choices, relationships, and second chances.” Grigorian’s latest novel, 15 Days with You, is available for pre-order. This is the second time he is speaking at The San Fernando Valley Chapter of The California Writer’s Club.

Of his responsibility as a workshop facilitator, Grigorian says, “I don’t speak theory. I speak from things that work. I am also a story coach, so what I teach are tools that have helped my clients have breakthroughs. I’ve been there, I am there, and I struggle like all other writers, but I have also found the tools and the inspiration that keeps me going through it all.”

At the workshop, titled “Story Beats — Your Story’s Heart Beat,” Grigorian will share how attendees can become better storytellers. He began teaching workshops at writers’ conferences in 2014.

“Story to me is everything. And it should be top of mind for all writers. Beautifully constructed sentences are great. But I’ve seen people who can write beautiful prose without understanding what it is about story that hooks a reader. Story Beats reveal the heartbeat of story,” Grigorian adds.
