Be a playwright, maker of plays!
The first session of this basics-of-playwriting class will include playful writing exercises with a focus on characters and conflict. Exercises will include guided free-writing, monologues and dialogue. We will also cover standard play formatting during the first session.
For the second session, students will bring their brand new 10-minute play to class (from guidelines assigned in the first session) and hear the play read out loud for the first time.
Bring a pen and/or pencil and paper or notebook. (No laptops, just good old fashioned pen and paper.) No experience necessary. (Though experienced writers also welcome.)
This class takes place at Court Tree Collective in Carroll Gardens!
