The Mincer: Character Immersion on the Page
Tuesday, June 15, 2021, 7:00-8:30pm CST $25
“The Mincer” is an immersive interior/exterior character discovery experience that will get you deep inside your character’s head and emotional reality, while staying rooted in their setting. This multi-layered exercise has been developed over the past twenty years of Britta’s experience working on character development in both Off-Broadway theatre and the publishing world in the UK and US. During the workshop we’ll focus on going deep and immersing yourself in your character’s inner and outer life, as well as unveiling exciting esoteric layers in between. Explore character development from a more subconscious level in this workshop and connect with your character’s deeper history, emotional reality and voice. Registration closes June 13 at 11:59pm CST.
What’s Riding on Your Writing? Writing Without Fear
Wednesday, July 28, 2021, 12:00-1:00pm CST $25
What makes it difficult to show up to the page? Why do bold literary choices sometimes feel out of reach? What is holding you back from writing what you dream of seeing in print some day? Using meta cognition, exploratory exercises, short readings from poets & writers, and a guided discussion, we will interrogate ways in which fear can hold us back. Together we will investigate the layers of thought behind your fears in order to set your writing free! Come join us for this interactive workshop. We welcome participants from all over the world. Registration closes July 26 at 11:59 CST.
Wednesday, August 11, 2021, 12:00-1:00pm CST (1 hour w/ written feedback) $125
Get feedback on up to 1,000 words of your manuscript through the lens of point-of-view (POV). Strengthen your understanding of how to use point of view to your advantage and tighten your story’s narrative. POV is one of the main reasons readers and agents stop reading: you want it to be consistent and engaging. Learn from established writers as well as award-winning author, Britta Jensen. This class is limited to 25 participants. You’ll have access to the recording for a month after the class. We welcome participants from all over the world. Early submissions will be featured in class, with permission. Registration closes Aug 9.
