I'm Ashley Warren, the "Chief Warlock" of the RPG Writer Workshop. I started the workshop to help aspiring writers create their first adventures! Wading through mountains of advice and resources can be daunting, so I recruited some talented and prolific creators to help break down the process into manageable pieces. Behind every great writer is a team supporting them, and I hope this workshop becomes that for you!
As for me, I'm a former college English teacher, researcher, and literacy academic. Now I work full-time in the RPG industry as a writer, narrative designer, and communications specialist for publishers including Wizards of the Coast, D&D Beyond, Hit Point Press, Onyx Path Publishing, Kobold Press, Astral TableTop, and more. I can't wait to get to know you!
