Workshop led by Sara Katzoff and Nichole Dupont
LifeWorks Studio, 50 Castle Street, Suite 2, Great Barrington, 5 p.m.
How do words transform when they are spoken aloud? It’s one thing to sit down alone and write, it’s quite another for those words to come off the page and begin to live on their feet. This workshop allows writers of all walks—fiction, memoir, poetry, fun—to experience the excitement of incorporating physicality and action into their work. Participants will write, collaborate and perform short dialogs, monologs and vignettes—all in one evening.
