Class Description

Dramatists! Are you interested in taking your playwriting to the next level? You've got the foundations, maybe you have a first draft for the stage, or a collection of early pages, and now you're in need of a supportive community to keep the fire going. This 4-week intermediate level workshop is for playwrights that are ready to take their skills to the next level. With craft-based, generative writing exercises, group discussions, close readings of plays by contemporary playwrights such as Charly Evon Simpson, Kristoffer Díaz, and Julia Izumi, you will develop a stronger hand at world building, character development, plot, and revision techniques. You will have the opportunity to hear short excerpts of your work read aloud by your classmates, as well as written feedback from your instructor.
By the end of the course, you will come away with a stronger confidence in your craft, as well as a clear vision for how to approach second, third, fifth drafts, etc. In parting, you will receive a list of curated resources to keep you moving forward professionally, as well as a non-exhaustive list of submission and development opportunities for your work.

Class Format

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!
