Interested in playwriting? Working on a piece that just needs an outside perspective, or want to try for the first time? Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, this course will give you an opportunity to learn the basics, as well as hear your work aloud and improve it in a supportive environment. This class will include free-writing activities and short lessons on playwriting each class, as well as time for presenting work. Each student will have multiple opportunities throughout the course to present their writing and develop their script with the support of their peers. A lesson in story structure, elements of a play and methods for generating ideas will begin this course, after which students will have be able to bring work to share for their scheduled workshops. This course will not only improve your play but will sharpen your skills as a playwright by assisting others in the development of their plays. (You do NOT need to have writing prepared on Day 1. We will help you get something started!)
