The Maydays Story Starters – Writing from Improv Workshop

Description: The aim of this Maydays workshop is to break creative writing blocks and produce ideas for stories that you can work on in your own time. We’ll spend 3.5-hours alternatively improvising, writing, improvising and writing… inspired by original material that really interests us.

Collaboration is positively encouraged as is sharing ideas and offering advice.

What can I expect?
– Short improv exercises & scenes to spark ideas
– Concentrated writing stints (please bring computers, pens, paper, or any writing implement that floats your boat)
– Sharing ideas for collaboration and advice
– Coffee, tea, biscuits

Who is this course suitable for?
– Adults aged 18 100
– People who are comfortable and experienced improvising scenes and/or games (I will generally have experienced improvisers doing scenes and less experienced ones doing games to save time).
– Improvisers who like writing, and writers who enjoy improvising.

This workshop will be hosted by Mayday, Jenny Rowe. The workshop will run on Sunday 28th July from 1.30pm-5pm at The Maydays Studio, 12A Regency Square, Brighton.

Jen has been writing for, ooh, ages. Shes run a number of writing for improv courses with The Maydays, and devising workshops with ACT Brighton and Chichester Festival Theatre courses over the past 14 years. Her self-penned solo-play Tiptree – No one Elses Damn Secret But My Own is intermittently touring the country and she has had a few short stories and other writings published, performed, or short and longlisted in competitions.

“Go for it…its a fun and supportive environment where you can try new things, play, and embrace mistakes and make them part of the fun.”
