Buffering & Writer’s Block
This performance has taken place in the past
Buffering and Writer’s Block is a workshop for story creators in any practice area. Through conversation let’s go on a walk through the terrifying darkness of ‘writer’s block’. And then let’s discard the term ‘writer’s block’ and discuss alternative approaches to processing creative challenges and trusting the unknown next idea. We’ll explore the parameters of where ideas might happen and get stuck into some haphazard story ideas.
