Many of our great plays have grown from some kernel of lived truth experienced by their authors. In this workshop, we will generate work inspired by our lived experiences, and shift that work into vibrant dramatic writing. We will plumb the depths of memory, but also investigate the fabric that holds our individual bodies of work together by asking ourselves what intrigues us? What delights us? What infuriates us? What, ultimately, pushes us to write? By week’s end, each writer will have worked substantially on a piece of dramatic writing, as well as developed an artist statement.
If you have it, please send 5 pages of current work to email@example.com by June 28.
Please bring a notebook or computer to write with.
