Throughout this course, we will emphasize storytelling techniques–theme, story, plot, dialogue, character arc–and the process of developing a script. Working from exercises from which the student writer gains access to personal material, the major focus of the class is writing and revising a short play or screenplay. A workshop component of the class will allow everyone to share their work and receive feedback on their completed script.
