AAWG member Claire Beck has graciously agreed to host a writing workshop on Saturday, April 24, 2010 titled “Improv as a Springboard to Collaborative Writing.”
What is this?
During this workshop we will use a few fun and easy improvisation techniques to do some collaborative writing. Attendees will:
- Develop strategies for working collaboratively with other writers.
- Practice collaborative skills in a series of short improvisation activities.
- Collaborate with a small group of peers to write a 700 – 1000 word manuscript.
- Give a reading of the group’s finished product.
- Use a structured process to give and receive feedback.
Who should come?
Any member of AAWG with an inkling to try collaborative writing.
When and Where is it?
Saturday, April 24th from 1:00-4:00 at the Algonquin Library Main Branch on Harnish Drive. The workshop will be held in one of the small study group meeting rooms on the main level.
What should I do if I plan on attending?
- Please respond using Comments to let us know you’re coming so we have a good head count.
- Ideally, we’ll be working with laptops so we can maximize our writing outputs. Each small group would have one laptop. If you have a laptop and don’t mind bringing it, please do, as it may be easier for groups to split up the work. If you don’t have a laptop, no worries!
- Please come prepared to participate in some brief improvisation activities and do some collaborative writing with a team or partner.
