3 credit(s) Writing Intensive
This course offers the opportunity to experiment with playwriting techniques in a workshop environment. The basic components of playwriting are taught, focusing particularly on character, dialogue, and plot. Students analyze plays from the standpoint of structure and take the opportunity to view and discuss local live performances. Seminars involve the workshop testing of student writing, focusing on further development of the work. It is intended that weekly writing exercises will culminate in a longer piece of work performed in a series of rehearsed readings.
Prerequisite(s): ENG 225W or DRA 160 , or permission of instructor.
