Craft Chat: From Stage to Page, Using Creative Dramatics to Inspire Writing with Lisa Kramer

Sunday, June 14th, 2-4pm

lisa_kramerHave you ever gotten stuck as your characters become elusive? Have you ever found it difficult to speak from an authentic voice or create authentic dialogue? Have you ever discovered the answers to your writing problems while doing something completely unrelated—exercise, listening to music, talking with a friend? As writers it’s easy to get stuck into the routine of staring and the blank screen and hoping the answers will appear. We all know that doesn’t always work. So what do we do?

In this workshop, participants will be led through a series of activities to help them step outside of their comfort zone and explore characters in a new way. Participants will also be provided with opportunities to take what they’ve learned and write/draw something new.

This event is $Free$ and open to all.

And more coming soon …
