Event description

Description

"Michele Lowe is one of the best writing teachers in New York City." -DGI student


Join Michele Lowe for The Art of Rewriting, where you’ll learn how to evaluate and rewrite the latest draft of your play. Only eight students will be part of this class. Each week we’ll concentrate on another aspect of the rewrite from character to stakes to conflict and more. Two weeks before the semester begins, you’ll send your latest draft to Michele. Incomplete drafts are also acceptable. On Day One, Michele will have read your play and guide you from the perspective of someone who knows your work as a whole.

Class will meet eight times. We’ll read four students’ work per week. Students can bring up to ten minutes of writing. You’ll also receive twenty minutes of one-on-one coaching via phone, Skype, or FaceTime after the fourth class.

The Art of Rewriting is for motivated writers. You choose what you want to rewrite and what you want to bring to class to hear. This class is not about tearing down your play; it’s about giving you tools to make the next draft a better one.

Week 1: Character
Week 2: Stakes
Week 3: Secrets
Week 4: Conflict
Week 5: Dialogue
Week 6: Plot/Structure
Week 7: Transformation
Week 8: Letting go/Hanging On
