DESCRIPTION

Do you have an early draft play you don't know what to do with? This class is designed to help playwrights dissect the stories they've already created—whether completed first draft or a strong outline—and find a vision for moving forward. This class will give you strategies to open your play, discover its mechanics, reveal its strengths, and progress the play into its newest form. Through group discussion, reading and re-writing, this class will help you find the play your first draft wants to be. 

This is the class for you if you:

  • You'd like to take another look at one of your completed first drafts or story outlines

  • You want to hear about different ways of thinking about revision

  • You want to know more about the revising process

Important Things to Note:

  • There are 4 scheduled sessions

  • Payment plans are available as needed, please contact Alayna to discuss
