Playwriting Intensive

The Playwriting Intensive happens in a short time span (1 day in NYC, or 2 days on Zoom). The course includes a mixture of lectures and exercises. It’s open to writers of any level. Farther down, you can view a syllabus for this course.

The lights in the theater dim, and a play begins. Nothing beats the intensity of actors sharing the same air as the audience. The laughs and gasps and tears happen live, on the spot. And a play can be staged anywhere, from an empty space surrounded by folding chairs to a plush Broadway house.

A play will not soar in performance unless it’s great on the page. Here you’ll learn how to write for the stage and how to market your work.

Whether you seek to write one-acts or full-lengths or musicals, we’ll show you how to write plays that draw the big applause.
