The Artist's Way Classes in Seattle are Now Open for Registration for Fall Quarter

The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron is an international bestseller on the subject of creativity. Whether you see yourself as an artist or not, this book and class can be an incredibly useful resource to tap into your creative side which can benefit many parts of your lives. The 2 hour a week 12 week long class will take students through the 12 chapters with an emphasis on the accompanying chapter exercises and additional creativity exercises and strategies (i.e. meditation tools). This material can work with anyone, no matter how dormant or energized their creative life may be.

Julia Cameron uses three basic tools for students to enhance their lives and their creativity: morning pages (writing 3 pages longhand of stream of consciousness writing), artist's dates (solo fun dates with yourself) and completing creativity exercises at the back of each chapter. Students report that as a result of going through our Artist's Way class they more fully and genuinely know themselves, they discover or re-discover their gifts and talents and have more fun and joy in their lives.

To quote Julia, "In order to retrieve your creativity, you need to find it." The basic tools and the additional creativity exercises that we incorporate into the 12 week course can help you do just that. No prerequisites required for this class.  Maximum 11 students per class.

“I'd say it was one of the greatest experiences I've had and that everyone should take this class. Relevant to everyone and really does change your life in so many positive ways.” -Courtney H., Artist's Way Student

Kate Gavigan is passionate about The Artist's Way having seen the positive changes in her students' lives and having personally experienced the benefits of the materials. Kate worked in social services as a trainer for over 10 years when she found herself drawn to the material in The Artist's Way, which helped her uncover a passion for theatre and the arts. She credits her mid-life career change (now working at her dream jobs as an Artist's Way Instructor and Speaker, a Creativity Coach, a Home Organizer and pursuing her interest in Acting) to having gone through The Artist's Way.

MonoMyth Theatre is looking for a stage manager for our next project, In Short Order, opening in October 2017.    We have pulled inspiration from difficult and often terrifying situations that we have seen happen.  Our piece is an anthology composed of four separate stories that encompass one common thread, and that is a subtle fear that we all have brewing inside.

We are looking for a stage manager who has experience working with small casts and new works. This show is made up of four new scripts combined into one show - it will be a cast of three that will play different characters in each script. There will be close collaboration with the writers during the rehearsal process.

The rehearsal period will take place between early September and mid-October, mainly Monday-Thursday evenings with the occasional weekend rehearsal. Rehearsals will take place at TPS in the Seattle Armory.

The show will go up at the Slate Theatre in the Inscape Arts Building in Sodo from October 23 through Nov 12. The show will run Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.

Auditions are Friday, August 11 (6:00pm-8:30pm) and Saturday, August 12 (10:00am-12:00pm), with callbacks following the second audition slot on Saturday, August 12 (2:00pm-4:00pm). We hope the stage manager will be able to manage auditions - but if you are unavailable at that time, please still apply and we can works around that.

Please note that this is a new work.  We are looking for someone who is excited to work on a new, previously unproduced work.

There is a small stipend available for this project.

If this sounds like a project you would like to be involved in - please let us know! We would like to know a little bit about you, so please prepare a cover letter telling us a little about yourself and your background in theatre, your experience in stage management, and what theatre means to you. Please send your cover letter and a copy of your resume to by July 28, 2017. 

We look forward to hearing from you!

-MonoMyth Theatre

Sponsor Message From Naomi Mercer:

Dearest fellow performers of the Puget Sound region,

Is this year flying by or WHAT?!  Between politics, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and summer FINALLY coming to us after the most grueling winter ever, I feel like I've never had more distractions in my life.  Enjoying summer is a welcome distraction.  But the rest of it doesn't really make me any money or help me move forward with my goals.  So before another day escapes us, I want to get my closed Facebook group in the mix. 

You might ask, "What's so special about a closed Facebook group?"

Welp, for starters, it's FREEEEEE:)  It's also very interactive--people participate in discussions, give each other tips, and talk about what's going on right now in the industry.  You can get advice from either myself or another vo actor that might be a couple levels above you.  Or, if you're feeling generous, you can give advice to someone with less experience than you.  Calling it "closed" only means that not just anyone can join.  It's for two types of people - people who are serious about becoming a working voice over talent or people who are currently working regularly in the field.

Plus there are some very simple rules that keep things nuttin' but productive:)  Stuff like no self promotion except during designated times, or topics for the day - like Workin' Wednesday (Whatcha workin' on?) or Goal Digger Friday (What are your goals this week?) - so we can spark discussions that everyone can learn something from.

I've only recently learned how helpful closed groups are.  For my recording and editing, I use Adobe Audition and I joined the closed group for it, Inside Audition.  It's great for posting questions when I'm stumped with the software.  Sometimes I just read through all the posts because I learn so much!  Plus the developers are on there all the time and they chime in regularly. 

If you ask me a question on this new closed Facebook group, I can give you an answer that everyone can see and learn from.  It's going to be awesome!  Fellow voice over colleagues, I give you the Voice Over Talent Collective (you can call it the VOTC for short).

See you there!!
