Industry Listing, Workshop / Classes.

This course is an exploration of playwriting and play development practice and its relationship to dramaturgy. The work will include: in-class writing exercises; practical discussions on working with playwrights, dramaturgs and directors; and expectations for playwrights in a workshop environment. The course is geared both to writers and those intending to work with writers: it is open to playwrights and other theatre artists exploring creation through writing.

PLEASE NOTE: Participants will be asked to write and read new material (monologues and short scenes) aloud throughout the course and to do assignments between classes. As this is a virtual class a reliable internet connection is ideal. If you do not have a reliable internet connection, and are interested in taking the class, please note it on your application. We are committed to finding an alternate way to facilitate your learning and participation in the class.

Please contact: with a succinct 1 page statement about your interest in the course and a bio or resume or C.V that includes your experience as a writer / theatre artist / creator. Registration is limited.

The application deadline for this course is: 5PM on November 30th, 2020.
