Craft & Career Intensive: November Ain’t Just for Novelists!

Hey playwrights, you’ve probably heard of NaNoWriMo† by now. But how about applying that spirit to playwriting? Join my November intensive, an abbreviated version of a class I’ve taught before, and spend a weekend writing and rewriting, lather, rinse, repeat. We will generate pages of new material from exercises, writing directives, and various sources of inspiration such as memory, objects, and schools of thought. You will learn rewriting techniques and games and methods of funneling outside feedback through your creative brain. You will receive a full playwriting boot camp in one weekend.

And then! We’ll return the following Saturday and talk about turning your sizzling hot craft into a career complete with actionable goals, a better sense of your professional community and how to navigate it, when to submit your work, when/how to generate your own opportunities, and how to leave a lasting impact on the field.

And!! There will be snacks!

WHEN: Saturday, Nov. 7th - Sunday, Nov. 8th & Saturday, Nov. 14th
11AM to 6PM all three days including lunch break.

WHERE: The beautiful Gallery space at TheatreLab, 357 West 36th Street, 3rd Fl, New York, NY 10018

WHY: Because this is the perfect time to push your craft beyond your comfort zone and to get ready for a new year as a professional. Grad school deadlines are coming up and so are the holidays. Now is the time!

PRICE: $375. $350 for anyone who’s studied with me before! (An installment plan is also possible.)
