We are incredibly proud to bring creative writing courses to our offerings at Tightrope Improv for Wellness.
Creative writing work can help the improvisor find their unique voice in the world, embody characters, and develop creative imagination muscles needed to invent story.
In our partnership with Rebecca Gifford, participants will have the expert guidance of a published writer as they apply improv concepts like in the moment writing and giving feedback to peers. Creative writing is an important part of wellness and a great compliment to our improv-based programs.
Learning to access your creative superpowers is a life skill and robust tool for resilience. This workshop will help you (re)discover how writing and creative expression can offer strength, humour, confidence, clarity and healing, even amidst challenge and change. This is not a traditional writer’s workshop, and no writing experience is necessary — only a willingness to be curious and try new things.
In six two-hour weekly sessions we will explore:
What to expect:
"I had the privilege of taking the Express Yourself workshop this past Fall, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to writer's and non-writers! This was the first time I had taken any kind of writing course since high school (a true writing class virgin!) And I was a bit unsure of what to expect. Would the Zoom atmosphere work for me? Would I fit in with the group? Have I retained enough academic knowledge to not look foolish? Mindfulness, how will that work? Well, by the end of our first class, I felt reassured. Rebecca has a gift for making people feel heard. Without giving away any secrets, I finished the class with new friendships, new confidence in writing and a new love of Poetry." -Jeanette Fisher Pynn, Class of September/October 2021
The course series will be delivered over zoom.
