This lively and imaginative class is perfect for adventurous writers working on their first play—whether you’re trying out a new genre or are at the very beginning of your writing journey. Each week, we'll explore scenes from contemporary plays and explore topics like character, dialogue, plot, worldbuilding, and more!
