Introduction to Playwriting (Adults, 8 Weeks)

Introduction to Playwriting (Adults, 8 Weeks)

Presented by The Writer's Center at The Writer's Center

This workshop will introduce basic elements of writing for the stage through exercises, in-class writing prompts, and examples taken from popular and classic plays. Designed for new writers, writers of other genres interested in what makes playwriting different, and for those who have taken one or more sessions of “Elements of Playwriting,” the emphasis will be on getting started, generating new material and developing the vocabulary and strategies for constructive feedback. The goal is to develop a basic understanding of playwriting skills through exploration and experimentation in a safe and playful environment. By the end of this eight-week workshop participants can expect to have completed a draft of a ten minute play, a one-act play, or a collection of scenes.
