What’s Online (National): Writers Warm-up with Jesse Stong

 

 
Storytelling is important. The stories we tell and how we tell them say a lot about our identities.
 
Unfortunately, in these times of physical distancing and heightened anxiety, it can be hard, as a writer, to get going in the morning. Life block is writer’s block, your life is part of your story and what blocks you in life will block you in your stories as well.
 
To help unfreeze our quarantine-addled minds, Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal’s own Jesse Stong helps us kickstart our days live on YouTube, every Monday and Friday at 10:15 AM, with 15-minute hands-on activities designed to support new, emerging and established storytellers!
