Writing Without a Map: This workshop will focus on starting a play, from the development of story ideas, exploration of character to the early stages of structure. You may come in with anything from a preliminary idea to the very beginning of a play. The afternoon will focus on an intuitive approach to dramatic structure, inspiring an organic writing process.
