CW 288 - Playwriting: Form and Craft

Conflict. Paradox. Mystery. Suspense. Gossip. Poetry. Lies. All the ingredients of great plays. From dreams, memories, coupons, newspaper articles, rare books, overheard snippets of conversation, visual images and sounds, you will be encouraged to create fragments of dramatic writing (i.e., dialogues, monologues, settings) unique to your own imagination and temperament. Then our focus will shift to revision and expansion - deepening character, refining language and building a dramatic arc. Readings of contemporary plays, theory, manifestos and reviews will supplement our creative work.
