Join us for a deep dive into craft through experiential writing exercises and creative activities using Stanislavsky’s Method for actors. We’ll be treading the boards of our minds to deepen character and story through the revelatory “homework” the greats of the stage have used for decades. With a theatre degree from the University of Southern California and professional work as a director, I’ve come to see that the Method—a style of acting that focuses on deep psychological connection to character—is a perfect system for writers.
You do not have to come prepared with any writing, and all levels are welcome. All I ask is a dedication to expanding your creative horizons. It’s time we writers got our turn in the spotlight, no?

Note about Writespace’s online workshops: Participants should plan to commit three hours per week to reading, posting, and responding to assignments in the online classroom and one to two hours per week to writing outside the classroom. Online workshops offer built-in flexibility and are ideal for writers with busy schedules, as the times participants visit the classroom are determined solely by their own availability, whether they are available at 3 PM or at 3 AM or at any other times on any other days of the week. Participants will be invited to enter the online classroom and will receive instructions the day the workshop begins.
