May 26, 2012 – Intuitive Screenwriting Tools: Tapping Into Your Unconcious Mind

Anne Norda’s seminar, you’ll learn techniques to hear your inner voice and discover new ways to spark off your creativity.

She’s designed unique exercises to help writers break through creative blocks and re-imagine limited ideas. Her tools and writing games (in the spirit of Viola Spolin’s theater games) access the writer’s unconscious mind and allow it to express itself fully and freely.

Anne believes, after years of leading writing workshops, that anybody can break through “writer’s resistance” at any moment. It’s just a matter of entering through a different portal.

Anne offers new keys to the infinite doors of creative expression. Whether you’re working on a screenplay, a TV pilot or a novel, these techniques can bring you deeper into the realm of your story and connect you to the heart of whatever impulse first led you to it.

Her exercises will imbue more energy, surprise and magic into your characters, scenes, and plot. You’ll have the opportunity to put the tools into practice during the seminar.

So bring paper and pen and be prepared to unleash your imagination!
