Writing For Ryan

Updates and News

Writing for Ryan is please to announce that we have been invited to present a filmmaking workshop at

The 2018 Santa Cruz Mini Maker Faire!


Writing For Ryan: Documentary Making Workshop-A journey of passion and empowerment.

We will be presenting five thirty-minute sessions about the process of turning an idea into a complete project, regardless of the maker's level of experience or skill set. Included in the discussion will be topics such as brain storming and organizing ideas, perceived obstacles and solutions, finding support, and building self-confidence through action. Participants will have a chance to reflect on their own dreams, consider what obstacles may be holding them back, receive support and tips, and view a small clip of our community-supported documentary film. We will share our process, progress, and information regarding Chiari Malformations and the importance of awareness in regard to rare disorders, conditions, and diseases.  We invite everyone from our community to come out, join our discussion, share their dreams, and take in the other makers' exhibits. We hope to see you at:

What is Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects.

We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.

Glimpse the future and get inspired! Santa Cruz has a vibrant maker’s scene. The Mini Maker Faire helps makers network with other makers, and provides opportunities for individuals and companies to showcase their innovative nature and new products. If you attend, you’ll be inspired and educated by the amazing and creative makers who live and work in our community.
