Writer/Performer Lauren Weedman is skilled in writing everything from 3-minute sketches to short stories to longer solo works. In this workshop she'll use varying methods to help you clear up, clean up and finish up your writing. Including awesome brainstorming exercises, demonstrating her process by going through how she organized and edited a few of her own pieces and having people read or talk about parts of their work to further demonstrate specifics on how to organize, structure and edit your writing. She'll also talk about where she gets ideas from and how to cultivate them.
This is neat: once you register for this class you will have the opportunity to email Lauren your top two questions about the writing process that you'd like answered -- so she can tailor exercises and feedback just for the people there! Writing experience is required.**
$40 for this class by itself or $75.00 for both this class and Give Your Life Some Effing Stage time. You will pay a $20.00 deposit to reserve your space through brownpaperticket. The rest will be due day of class.
** Please email firstname.lastname@example.org about your interest in the classes and tell her a little bit about your performance/writing background.
