BRIO Winner Maryrose Wood: Storytelling Workshops

Writers, Get Ready for Your Close-up! How to “Zoom in” for More Powerful Fiction


One writing craft issue that sets professional writers apart from beginners is the confident use of “psychic distance.” Think of it as the camera angles of fiction. In this workshop you’ll learn how to vary your writing between “wide shots,” “medium shots” and “close-ups,” bringing your readers right into the action. Come ready to listen, write, and share.

Bronx, NY 10463

TWO-PART Workshop

Friday |  September 2nd |  3:00-5:00pm

and

Friday |  September 9th |  3:00-5:00pm

 

An Offering: From an Idea to the Page to the Body

A two-part workshop with BRIO-winner Rock Wilk


There’s a huge difference between reading from the page and memorizing your work. Both performance approaches are amazing, but these workshops will focus on leaving the paper (or smart phone) behind. You’ll share your work with an audience, looking them in the eye and hearts. No microphones, either. Just you!

A two-part writing and performance workshop: from an idea to the page to the body—an offering to the world. Come create an original and meaningful story in whatever form you’re most comfortable with, whether short story, poetry, monologue. We’ll take that story, work to memorize it, and share it with one another at Poe Park Visitor Center in Fordham. 

Workshop 1 -

Friday, September 2, 2016 | 3:00p.m.—5:00p.m.

Write. Get your story on the page. Storytelling will be limited to using only dialogue. No “telling” the story, we’ll be “showing” it. You will immerse us in the action as it’s happening. 

Admission is free, but RSVP is required.

Workshop 2 -

Friday, September 9, 2016 | 3:00p.m.—5:00p.m.

Perform. This workshop will focus on your offering. Off the page: just you and your body and your audience. You will perform your story. Hope you can join us!

Admission is free, but RSVP is required.
