Aug 24: Using Stage Direction in Writing

About Our Workshop:

How Actors and Directors Use Physical Action on Stage, And How Writers Can Steal Their Techniques: In this workshop, New York Times bestselling author Ginny Myers Sain draws on her more than 20 years of experience as a director and acting coach to teach you how theatre professionals use physical action on stage to heighten tension, underscore important moments, deepen characterization, reveal relationships, and ground scenes in reality.

About Our Speaker:

Ginny Myers Sain is the author of DARK AND SHALLOW LIES (2021), SECRETS SO DEEP (2022), ONE LAST BREATH (2024), and WHEN THE BONES SING (coming in 2025), all from Penguin Teen. Her debut novel, DARK AND SHALLOW LIES, is a New York Times bestseller, an Indie Bookstore Bestseller, a Barnes & Noble YA Pick of the Month, an Amazon Editor's Pick, and a 2022 CRYSTAL KITE award winner from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. Although she comes from a long line of writers, Ginny's first love has always been the theatre. She has a degree in theatre and has spent most of her career teaching acting and directing plays and musicals. Ginny currently lives in St. Cloud, Florida, with her college-age son and a wild goldendoodle named Magnolia. When she is not working in the theatre or writing, you're likely to find her listening to true crime podcasts, taking pictures of alligators, eating tacos, traveling to spooky places, or hanging out at Walt Disney World.
