Vivid scenes are tricky. John Skipp's new workshop focuses on how to inhabit scenes with a sense of you-are-thereness. Grounding them from the inside. Feeling the world through their skin. And then making it "playable," for actors and comic characters alike!

Our written assignment is a story or scene in first person, using a pre-described scenario. From there, we'll do exercises from live dialogue readings to situational role-play to “casting” your characters. Fun will be had. And tricks will be shared, for all students of human (and non-human) moves.

John Skipp is a New York Times bestselling novelist, two-time Stoker award-winning anthologist, and co-director (with Andrew Kasch and a host of others) on the feature film Tales of Halloween. A born troublemaker and compulsive collaborator, his early work was at the forefront of the ’80’s splatterpunk revolution. His 1989 anthology Book of the Dead laid the foundation for modern post-Romero zombie literature. And he continues to inspire and foment insurrection as acquiring editor for Eraserhead (bizarro), Deadite (cult horror), and his own Fungasm Press, dedicated to works of unclassifiable genre-breaking asskickitude. You can read his thoughts on the state of the art in his regular column, Nightmare Royale, at Fangoria.com, where he is noisily advocating for the noble cause of “Women In Horror Century”. He also loves teaching in the crash course format, and, as a multi-instrumentalist, can jam all night. His latest book is a solo short story collection, The Art of Horrible People.
