About this Elevate Workshop
Showing up, committing, being vulnerable, putting yourself out there -- these are all social and emotional tasks that mental health workers ask of their clients and that professionals from any field who want to make an impact ask of themselves.
Writing is a significant part of making an impact and getting our message out to clients, colleagues and the communities we serve, but for many of us the white page can be intimidating. The pressures we feel trying to get words on the page can be daunting, whether we are writing grant requests, project pitches, company communications in the clinical or business world, or we need to start that nonfiction book proposal.
In this 3-hour Applied Improv & Writing Workshop you will learn how to say “Yes, And” to yourself and your ideas so you can tackle creative writing in a whole new way. Learning about and playing with the rules of applied improvisation (“Yes, And,”), author and improvisation workshop facilitator Sloane Miller, LMSW, will help you address the fear of the empty page through applied improvisation exercises that will uncover your latent creativity with ease and laughter.
This workshop is experiential (i.e everyone will be participating). We will do applied improvisation exercises that lead to in-class writing prompts. Any writing work will not be shared.
This workshop can be done as a 90-minute or 2-hour module. Up to 12 participants (max) recommended. If your group has different size dimensions, this can be adapted. Let's discuss!
