Scene Writing for Actors
Say you've been assigned to write a scene to perform in class. Do you get excited? Or do you feel panicked or daunted? Do you wonder why your acting teacher keeps telling you to write scenes when you don't think of yourself as a writer? Or maybe like many actors, you're excited about coming up with your own material but feel like you get in your own way.
Writing a scene doesn't have to feel like a chore when you listen to your imagination. Often our minds get so busy with thoughts, that it can be hard to recognize what comes through your imagination. But when you can trust what comes up from the get go, you may be surprised that you have everything you need to create your scene.
If you want to learn more about how to access your imagination more easily so you can make writing scenes easier, come to a workshop to learn how to get past any barriers or blocks you may have. The process can help you build your characters as well as a compelling plot.
I bring the tools from my toolkit as a screenwriter, playwright, fiction writer, actor and writing coach to help you develop and leave the workshop with practical scene-writing tools and skills.
