If you're like many people and get a little anxious when you think about writing and writing assignments, it might help to think about writing in a fun new way. The IUP Libraries and the Center for Teaching Excellence are excited to present "Writing as Play: Have Fun and Boost Your Productivity with Playful Approaches to Writing," led by Jorjeana Marie, award-winning voice actress and television writer.

Marie, an Indiana native and IUP alumna, is also the author of Improv for Writers: 10 Secrets to Help Novelists and Screenwriters Bypass Writer's Block and Generate Infinite Ideas. During her presentation, Marie will share tips and tricks to help you get started writing, boost your writing output, and have fun in the process.

This interactive presentation will take place on Thursday, October 20, 2022, from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. in Stabley Library Room 201, and features a meet and greet and book signing immediately following the event. If you have an hour to spare, this presentation can help you discover your inner writer and leave feeling energized and with some new tools for your writing toolbox.
