Free Playwriting Workshop with NotaBle Acts Dramaturg in Residence, July 19
Want a creative workout? Want to kick-start a new project? Or maybe you’d like to take a chance and try some new approaches to your writing process? This master class will be a unique opportunity for playwrights at a variety of skill levels to exercise their crafts via a series of in-class exercises and discussions led by NotaBle Acts Theatre Company Artist in Residence / Festival Dramaturg Heather Inglis. The class will offer participants creative workouts in crafting dialogue, building characters, discovering dramatic structure, unlocking intuition and editing. More experienced playwrights are invited to bring scenes from works in process to the class. A limited number will be read and critiqued as part of the day.
The workshop will take place from 10AM-4PM (bring a bag lunch) at Carleton Hall, UNB, Saturday, July 19. There will be a maximum of 12 participants. To register, email Heather Inglis at firstname.lastname@example.org .
