Improvisational Writing: A Workshop with Andy Mozina @ Traverse Area District Library (TADL) Thirlby Room
Mar 25 @ 12:45 pm – 3:30 pm

Where do story ideas originate? What makes a good idea for a story? Are there processes and games for generating ideas and story scenarios?

Playing off of the techniques of improv comedians, this workshop will give writers repeatable techniques for establishing basic story elements from more or less random prompts. You’ll learn numerous ways to get something going “out of nowhere” and never have to worry about writer’s block again!

Workshop is free for members of Michigan Writers / $15 for non-members.

Registration is limited to 15 people, so sign up early!

A book signing will take place immediately following the workshop for both workshop members and those who were not at the workshop, but who would like to meet Andy and get a book signed.

Sign up today!
