Course Catalog

Playwriting: Diving into Dialogue

All Levels | Shape the dialogue of your play by building and creating compelling characters, exploring voice, and driving your plot forward through your characters’ behaviors and choices. Each week, we’ll read and discuss one scene by a contemporary playwright, exploring how each artist uses dialogue to move their story forward. We’ll explore both the dramatic and comedic form, and the intersections therein. Writing will include generative exercises and weekly assignments.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
