Learn how to develop a play scene by scene. Students will bring in writing each week and hear their work read out loud. With the aid of in-class writing exercises and guidance for the work brought in each week, one-act plays and full lengths will develop for each playwright. Come discover your voice in a safe environment and watch what develops.
