DESCRIPTION:This class explores the craft of writing for the theater. Through weekly assignments, in class writing exercises, and work on a sustained piece, students explore scene structure, action, events, voice, and dialogue. We actively discuss student work. This class's emphasis is on process, risk-taking, and finding one's own voice and vision. The goal at the end of the class session is a 10-minute play for presentation.
