Workshop 04: Evocative Playwriting
Do you have a story to share? What if your life were a play? This workshop focuses on process, risk-taking, and finding one’s own voice and vision. Participants will practice creating dialogue and action by way of their own personal narratives and guided exercises. Playwriting will become a means to explore identity and the fundamental issues of human existence. Open to writers of all identities and walks of life.
