Improv for Writers: Moving a Story Forward Section II (Matt Smith

A second section of this sold out class.

Learn the improv exercises practiced by the world’s best improv artists. The exercises will be accessible, easily transferable, simple, and often obvious; the premise is that by embracing these principles, your writing will never be blocked again. You will learn the exercises “on your feet.” These exercises will benefit you if you want to get better at moving a story forward. This is not a comedy workshop, though we will touch on how writers can find and mine the humor in any situation. No acting experience necessary.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
