Workshop: Improv for Creative Writing
When I picked up the fiction-writing pen again recently a lot of my theatrical/comedy improvisation training came into play. Improv approaches helped me discover voice, character, details, plot points, dialogue etc.In this interactive workshop, creative writers learn through activities and exercises -- out loud and on the page. We will cover an introduction to improvisation and improv concepts such as heightening, beats, and layering.You will leave the workshop knowing how to find a story's unique voice, how to trust and inspire yourself, and how to keep an audience engaged.
Next workshop date: Fyrecon 2023
