Playwriting Workshop

Writing for the stage is easy: just give two people opposing goals and write what they say to each other. Well … maybe not quite that easy, but playwriting is definitely doable, exciting, and fun. This workshop – suitable for writers of all levels, including “square-one” beginners – will explore the simple process of coming up with and developing your story idea, creating believable characters, writing natural dialogue, and giving structure to your play. In a relaxed, non-judgmental environment, we will work together to create a play, short or long, based on a story you want to tell. At the end of our six weeks, we will stage a reading of scenes from our plays for an invited audience.

6 Tuesdays, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., 3/03/2015–4/07/2015
