Basics of Playwriting for Writers of All Genres
Have you always wanted to write a play? Curious about where to begin? In this introductory playwriting workshop, we'll learn the basics of craft elements. There will be interactive discussions, group exercises, and generative writing time. Students will leave with their own mini play and the basic tools to start writing a longer piece on their own. This playwriting workshop is open to writers of all genres and experience levels. Come ready to learn, discuss, ask, and play.
