Break Out of Your Writing Rut with Improv

Loading Events

Is your writing in a beautifully furnished, air-conditioned rut? Or maybe you just want to have fun and jumpstart your creativity? This three-hour workshop will introduce you to games used by Improv performers and apply them to your writing practice–creating interesting new plot twists, sparking radical never-before-seen imagery, and unleashing all manner of mad word choice and unique characters. Class time will be a mix of game-playing and writing, individual and teamwork. You will leave with some new writing, a toolbox full of games and prompts to inspire your creativity, and a smile on your face.
