Writing About Improvisation

Time: March 27, 2019, 9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

Location: 304 Tolley Humanities Building

What do improvisers do? How does improvisation function? This workshop—for writers of all kinds—seeks a deepened understanding of improvisational languages across all disciplines, and examines tensions between form and improvisation to achieve clearer understanding of an elusive concept.

Space is limited. Please RSVP by March 8 to Eric Grode and include any accommodation requests.
