Introduction to Playwriting


This course is for beginning or intermediate writers and is open to freshmen. The course will focus on how a play works, and the differentiation of playwriting from other forms of writing, i.e. the qualities of behavior driven dialogue vs. prose. Through lecture and several assigned or spontaneous writing exercises, the course will take the student thru the initiation of idea, character, structure, language, image, and the practicalities of script format. This course counts toward the Creative Writing Concentration.
