About this event

CMX Los Angeles is proud to present the Word Improv Community!! Come experience Community in our premiere "Community Lab": 

The Word Improv Community by @Wordsleuth is an eclectic, collaborative and evolving social media-driven collective of stakeholders from the writing/publishing and entertainment industries. The Word Improv Challenge, central to what we do, challenges participants to identify and use unusual words. Participation in this challenge unlocks access to our Pass-the-Baton interviews, where participants interview one another via Instagram Live, in order for our community and followers to learn more about the interviewees and their work. The interviews are converted into a podcast called 'Wordsleuth’s Pass-the-Baton Interviews'. We will soon launch on social media a new, leaderboard-driven, Word Improv-inspired game/competition to help put our knowledge of the words we learn to the test! Virtual book tours and creative collaboration will be incorporated into our efforts to maximize value and engagement for our community.

Join us on Sunday, April 30, 2023, from 9 A.M PST to 11 A.M. PST, to learn more. All are welcome. RSVP here.
