Just got the email from Marcus Calvert and Weston Kincade. They had hosted the Prompt Joust at Cleveland Concoction, an improvised storytelling competition where two authors improvise a sixty-second story from a common artifact inspiration. The winner goes on to the next round. The loser goes back to their seat to wallow in self pity.
I would like to say I performed brilliantly, but most of my improv experience was as a mime, so my vocal performance was not as polished as the trained actress I went up against. Still it was great fun, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Here are the links to the Youtube channel and their scheduled upload dates:
The introduction episode to the series was released earlier today (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ioo4Z-xAU6Q&t=4s). Starting tonight at midnight, each episode will be released for the next 8 days.
