Jorjeana Marie - Writer, Author and Voice Actor

Creators Society Animation Podcast

Jorjeana Marie - EPISODE 009: Today I got to chat with a super talented writer, creator, voice actor, comedian, and author, Jorjeana Marie. Jorjeana not only has a passion for writing but for sharing and teaching what she knows. She's also the author of the book, Improv for Writers. Now I'm sure most of you are aware of improv even if you haven't been a part of it, but it's really clever how Jorjeana has adapted a lot of improv exercises into a book for writers.  We talk about it in the show, and I even read one of the exercises I did. If you're a writer or creator, we obviously should always be looking for ways to grow and stretch our creative muscles. And if you're a producer or director or an artist, then this approach could be really helpful for you too. Jorjeana has run workshops based on her book at places like Disney and Cartoon Network and she talks about how artists have been able to use the exercises to give life to a drawing that has been sitting around for years. This was a really great conversation, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.Find "Improv For Writers" on Amazon.Episode Recorded: 3/24/2021Host & Producer: Michael Wakelam (@mikewakelam)Executive Producer: Eric M.

Jorjeana Marie puts this diverse and hilarious cast of New York characters through their many-accented paces like Dorothy Hamill landing a triple axel. In every paragraph. Her warm, bright tone creates just the right mood, and her pacing, balancing humor and looming disaster, is perfect.”Gordon Warnock is a founding partner at Fuse Literary, serving as a literary agent and Editorial Director of Short Fuse Publishing.
