Write That Play!

Virtual Program Virtual Program

August 5 @ 7:00 pm 10:00 pm Eastern

Playwriting allows writers to tell stories using a unique medium–live performance. But how to work in that form and develop a play? This one-session class reviews the fundamentals of narrative structure, with a focus on the creation of a play for performance. Participants will read a short play in real time, analyze its structure, and develop a short story of their own, with a focus on how that story might become a short play!
