Publisher's Summary

Improv instructor and writer Jorjeana Marie presents the first book to harness the creative power of improvisation exercises to help both aspiring and seasoned authors defeat writer's block and generate new ideas. 

Suffering from writer's block and inner critics? Having trouble generating ideas for plots, settings, and characters? Introducing the rules and techniques of improvisation as they apply to fiction writing, improv instructor and writer Jorjeana Marie addresses each major element of storytelling by applying writer's-block-busting games and inner-critic-quieting exercises to get the creative ideas flowing. Armed with the power of improv - and freeing exercises like Ad Agency, Your Local Library, and Family Portraits - you'll soon be an idea machine. With Improv for Writers, your creative storytelling well will never run dry again. 

Features a PDF of Lists to Assist with Games and Exercises. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Not good

I disliked this. It’s unoriginal and mawkish. Its self-aggrandising introduction is nauseating. I like improv theatre but this book has no elements of improv. It’s predictable and lacks humour. I wish I could get my money back. I want to delete this title.

Life wisdom disguised as a how-to book!

LOVE THIS BOOK! ... and I’m not even an Improv Writer. I believe we could all use help improving our communication skills, why not have a ton of fun doing it?! I would recommend this book for everyone! Also, the author’s narration was simply the absolute best. I just want her narrating all the best moments of my life!

A unique writing resource

I'm sure reading the book is great but listening was an absolute joy. The author, Jorjean Marie, doesn't just read the words, she brings them to life with her unique presentation and energy and you can't help but get swept up in the excitement.

One of the best books I've ever listened to, I've discovered how to outrun the doubts, ignore the critical voice and have fun with story. A fantastic book, and one I'll be listening to again and again.
