Beginner's Playwriting

3 - 5PM, Sundays

Have you always wanted to write a play but didn’t know how to get started? Then this class is for you. With a series of structured exercises, you’ll learn how to structure a dramatic script with the final goal of completing your very own 10-minute play that will be ready to submit to short-play contests across the country.


This class is geared towards novice playwrights.
