The Art of Arranging Happy Accidents:
Make Random Chance Your Writing Partner
Teacher: Ashley Naftule
Putting on a play is a collaborative process, but often times writing plays can be a lonely one. But you don’t have to go it alone- there’s a way to bring a second mind into your work. Using “chance operations” like Tarot cards, the I Ching, and other techniques can inspire new ideas, complications, and twists that can open up your work and help you get over any blocks you might be dealing with. This workshop will teach you several different methods to help you quickly generate new ideas for characters, settings, and stories.
