In this interactive playwriting boot camp, you will write the core materials for a new play. Come with an idea in mind or discover your play as you write it. Through a series of fun directed writing exercises, we will explore the terrain of writing a new play: mining for material, constructing characters and settings, conjuring vivid dialogue, dramatic conflict and finding your voice. We will read brand new pages aloud, discuss writing practices and the strengths and weaknesses of our work in this supportive and generative experience for both new and practicing writers. We will also read and discuss short published texts in regards to craft, then write exercises inspired by the texts. Note that this is not a course in the fundamentals of playwriting, but an opportunity for beginning and advanced students to generate new scenes and raw materials for a new play.
