EVENT CANCELED



Need ideas to help you start writing? Join us for a monthly pop-up workshop co-presented by Phoenix College and ASU's Piper Center for Creative Writing.

Each session includes a 30-minute mini-class and a writing prompt exploring some aspect of craft—setting, dialogue, character development, etc.—followed by focused writing time and the opportunity to read your work to the group.

This workshop will be hosted online as part of our virtual event series.
 

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This month instructor Kim Porter discusses "Temple of Accumulated Errors."

Using short improv games, prompts, old-fashioned story-swapping, and "no-resistance" exercises we will unearth anecdotes about our very best mistakes. We will use a deconstructing tool to create framing devices that elevate our anecdote to capital "S" stories. We will take a short but deep dive into sensory exploration to "paint our scenes". When we are done, participants will have transformed mishaps, blunders, and regrets into stories to share.

For information about participating in our virtual workshops, please see our FAQ page.
