Does your city or town have a weekly writer’s meeting. A place where everyone can freely offer up ideas for feedback? A group that exceeds 1600 members? Wayne Manigo joins us to discuss how he and Mandy Dalton created the Washington D.C. Comedy Writers Group.
Specifically, we talk about:
- Writing exercises to get your brain moving
- How to run a writing workshop
- How he got approached to write for Stage Time magazine
- The D.C. Writer’s Group Podcast
- Why he gave up his apartment and a career in Information Technology to pursue comedy
- How far he took that sacrifice
- Where he plans to go from here
