In a small group setting, performers of comedy, poetry, and storytelling work together to hone their craft. This workshop is led by Lawn Gnome Publishing founder and professional performer, Aaron Hopkins-Johnson.
Attendees will not need to bring anything other than a performance piece they want to work on and an open mind to let peers watch and critique work.
This monthly workshop focuses on ways to express the human condition and to build a knowledge base of performance techniques to improve public speaking and interpretation skills.
Maximum occupancy is 10 performers and admission is given on a first-come, first-served basis. Refunds will be allowed if requested 7 days before the scheduled date.
Each monthly exercise will be available as an ebook for free to attendees, or for $15 from lawngnomepublishing.com (available a month AFTER the original workshop).
