Gulf Coast Writers
The next Gulf
meeting will be
held on Saturday,
September 19 from
10 a.m. to noon
at Zion Lutheran
Winkler Road in
Fort Myers. The
guest speaker will
be Jodi Cohen talking about the subject
Improvisation For Writing.
Cohen has been performing and teach-
ing improvisation since the late 1990s.
She’s written and performed several origi-
nal one-woman shows, directed improv
troupes, written short non-fiction pieces
and also writes terrific thank you notes.
She has worked as a keynote speaker and
presenter, using improvisation as a plat-
form to teach communication skills. She is
delighted to be a new Fort Myers resident
and is excited to have recently joined the
Gulf Coast Writers Association.
Cohen will share with us how improv
allows us to “write” on the spot, automat-
ically, without editing. In this hands-on
workshop, participants will apply some
basic improv principles via short writing
exercises to explore character develop-
ment, story plot and idea generation.
Attendees will also experiment with how
to use “writer’s block/feeling stuck” as a
launch point for our writing practice.
Members and first-time visitors may
attend the meeting for free; guests are $5.

4515 for more information.
