8-Week: Playwriting Workshop (Denver)

$325.00 Members
$355.00 Non-members

Because this is an in-person workshop, by registering you are agreeing to follow our COVID-19 Safety Policy, which requires proof of vaccination for in-person attendance. If you plan to join us in person and have not already, please submit proof of vaccination via this secure form. If you aren't able to provide proof of vaccination by the first week of class, please consider one of our virtual workshops.

This all-levels course is designed to help you discover your dramatic voice and to lure out those wild and woolly characters clamoring to tell their story through you. We'll cover the ground rules of the stage (structure, character, plot, dialogue, motivation, subtext, silence, etc.) and see how the best plays and playwrights adhere to, and continually break, them. We’ll start class with in-class prompts to help you develop and push your dramatic voice, and we’ll end with workshop. Screenwriters welcome.

This workshop will include short lectures, discussion, and regular in-class writing. There will be an opportunity each week for two participants to volunteer to hear their work aloud and receive thoughtful verbal feedback.
