826michigan Presents "Improvisational Writing" with Andy Mozina!
A great way to stretch your imagination, generate story ideas and introduce surprise, movement and change into your fiction is to invite the random into your work and then make sense of it. Rubber duckies and intercontinental ballistic missiles? Deep down, they know each other. An eating disorder and dirty money--secret best friends. In this class, we'll look at a brief model text or two and then do like the improv theatre folks do and riff on the random in an organized way.
Andy Mozina is the author of the story collection The Women Were Leaving the Men, which won the Great Lakes Colleges Association New Writers Award. His fiction has appeared in Tin House, Ecotone, Fence, The Southern Review, The Missouri Review and elsewhere.
