Now, by “intensive” we don’t mean advanced or exclusive. Imagine a day of nothing but writing, renewal, and immersion in the first person narrative storytelling form. We'll start off with brainstorming exercises designed to help you mine your own life for story possibilities, and then spend time bringing a brand new piece of work to life through writing, feedback, and performance techniques designed to bring dimension and theatricality to your story. You’ll get one-on-one feedback from the instructor, group response from the workshop ensemble, and you’ll leave with a start on a new story. Lunch included.
