Intro to Playwriting

$475.00

This intensive provides a rigorous introduction into the fundamentals of playwriting. Students develop their writing skills by developing a 10-minute play each week. Once the foundation for playwriting is laid, the intensive then shifts format from lecture and discussion to workshop. Emphasis is placed not only on applying learned concepts, but on giving students a glimpse of the professional play work-shopping process–hearing one’s work aloud and receiving feedback. The class culminates in a celebratory public reading of student work. By the end of this intensive, students should have a basic understanding of the following…
* Stage play format
* Dramatic structure
* Character development
* Developing and establishing the world of a play
* Discovering their literary voice
* The play workshop process

* How to handle critique sessions… Giving, accepting and employing feedback
