This course is specifically geared to writers who have either a play in the works or are ready to embark on a new play. Working scene-by-scene, we’ll examine the writing and look for new ways to enhance and deepen the experience. Occasional in-class exercises will focus on character, dialogue, and story structure. New students will be asked to submit a writing sample.


LEVEL: Intermediate and Advanced


This class is open for registration by permission of the instructor only.  A short manuscript submission is required (play or screenplay preferred, but other forms accepted).
