Find yourself stuck in writing ruts or deep in the throes of the dreaded writer's block? This workshop will guide you through techniques for sparking creativity, overcoming writer’s block, and bringing new life to your voice and story. Jodi will lead you through a series of exercises and games inspired by her work in writing consulting and improvisation. She’ll challenge you to take your writing in new directions, leap into the unknown, and play with images, words, and ideas.

You’ll leave feeling refreshed and energized, enthusiastic and excited, ready to create, ready to write!

This workshop is open to all writers, whether you're revising your twelfth novel or about to write your first blog post.
