To arm young voices with the power of pen and prose, reinforcing teamwork, accountability, and responsibility; igniting social change on the page and stage.

About The Block

The Writers Block InK was started in 2003 as a 501c3 non-profit organization to encourage youth to use writing and performance as tools to address personal and social challenges on the community stage. Students create original productions which explore critical themes and issues.

Intro to the Art and Science of Improv

After more than 15 years of arming young voices with the power of pen and prose to ignite social change on the page and the stage, New London’s non-profit Writer’s Block Ink is opening “The Block” to adults with an introductory improv theater class! 
Anna Maria Trusky, founding member of the Connecticut-based improv comedy troupe Comedy on Demand, will introduce participants to the fundamentals of live improvisational theater, in which actors make up plots, characters, stories, scenes, and dialog in the moment. Participants will learn through games, exercises, and scene work in a fun, safe, supportive environment and ultimately showcase scenes before an invited audience.
