Teen Intensive: Playwriting


Course Code: JY16-D27
Are you a fiction writer or poet curious about playwriting and/or collaborative storytelling? Are you a playwright looking for a creative and thoughtful environment to hone your craft? This unique class is for serious teen writers who want to try writing for the stage the fun way: with a group. It’s okay if you’ve never written a play before, you just have to be willing to create and inhabit a character, like role playing, while collaboratively contributing to what all the characters do and say to move the story along. Through discussion, laughter, and invention you’ll learn about dialogue, voice, setting, character arc, backstory, archetypes, the heroes journey, and have a lot of fun making creative decisions with a group. There will be more in-class hours than our typical half-day classes in order to provide the in-depth focus and feedback you are looking for.
