PLAYWRIGHT INTENSIVE

with Lisa Soland

This weeklong playwright workshop, led by award-winning international playwright Lisa Soland, takes place June 3rd through June 7th and will explore all the dramatic formats: monologues, 10-minute, one-act and full-length plays. Before the week concludes, Ms. Soland will discuss all aspects of a playwright’s life. If you have never written anything before, attend. You will walk away with original material that works. If you write poetry, memoir, or novels, attend. Ms. Soland will spend an entire day on how to adapt your narrative writings into stage worthy stories of action with provocative dialogue. If you are an experienced playwright, Ms. Soland will cover all aspects to the craft, in a new and refreshing way. Whether it be submission, production, self-production, social networking, because all writers dine together, any question you might have that was not covered, can be asked of her directly, one-on-one.

Classes will be held in the mornings, private writing time in the afternoons, then after dinner, everyone will meet up again to read the work developed that day.

Selected pieces developed over the five days will be given a staged reading at the LMU 10-Minute Play Festival the evening of June 8. Thursday evening lodging is optional.

All writing levels welcome. Must be 18 years of age or older to participate.

Residential participants will stay in the lovely LMU residence halls.
