About the class

Maybe you’ve dabbled and maybe you’re a true beginner;
maybe you’ve written in other parts of your life but never for the stage?
Whatever your level of experience, the Playwriting Intensive will walk you through the basics of how to write a play.

We’ll look at the fundamentals of the story, explore tips and tricks for structure, and take deep dives into dialogue, character building, and most importantly… how to trust your instincts and get out of your own way!

Participants in this workshop will also have the chance to hear their work read by actors, a critical part of the playwriting process.
