This workshop focuses on high stakes content: a personal story with big emotional investment, relationship, and change, and the mechanics of writing and performing that story with lyricism and investment. We will discuss what makes a strong high stakes story, story structure, editing, the importance of detail, and connecting with the audience. High energy games form a large part of the learning process.
