This course is an opportunity to connect, collaborate, and create with a community of playwrights. Whether coming in with a draft in progress, or a completely new idea waiting to be launched: sessions will be structured to provide space to create, revise, and share material week to week – honed around the theme of generating material, working against perfectionism, working around nurturing curiosity and joy in playwriting. Through an exploration of playwriting exercises, practical conversations around new play development practises and dramaturgical collaborations, and discussions and sharing of material – participants will experience new tools and access tailored to their writing practise. From bristling language, to diving into the messiness of new writing, to that detailed process of revising, join us each week as we create, laugh, share, and connect over playwriting.
