Boston, MA - Muse & Marketplace: Spitballing!

So you're writing a story and feeling "stuck." What began as an exciting venture now seems dull and lifeless. Why not bring this logjam to other writers for revival? How might two heads (or 3, or 4) be better than one?

In this fun and fast-moving event, watch live authors use the "spitballing" techniques of screenwriters to push initial story ideas into wilder and more provocative possibilities. Come ready to brainstorm, laugh, and contribute your own ideas too.

NOTE: Free and open to the public, but space is limited. Cash bar. Follow the fun on Twitter at #writerspitball.
