This workshop is for writers — and actors! How do you unearth those telling details that make your writing come alive? How do you find your richest stories? By getting out of your head! Elaine Bromka’s unorthodox approach to writing is liberating. Bring pen, paper/notebook, a towel or mat, wear comfortable clothes – and park your self-judgment at the door. Perfect for both beginners and more sophisticated writers or actors.
