Event description
Love theatre? Interested in writing a story for the stage? This 5-week playwriting class is designed for students of all levels and ages.

About this Event

This 5-week course taught by Miriam Tobin explores different tools for writing a play. Starting with the nuts and bolts of craft, you'll learn how to structure plot and develop characters. Each week will offer a new playwriting technique, including writing exercises, collaborative storytelling, and group feedback. At the end of this course, you'll leave with a range of ways to translate your imagination onto the page, combat writer's block, and develop a play ready for production. This is a great course for all levels and all ages!

Miriam Tobin is a Seattle-based playwright and theatre artist. Currently in the MFA program at Goddard College, she holds a MA in Directing from NYU and trained at the Atlantic Theater Company and the London Dramatic Academy. Miriam has taught playwriting and acting in New York, Denver, and the Czech Republic and has performed on stages around the US. Her plays explore the ordinary in the extraordinary, and her writing will be published in the upcoming spring 2020 The Pitkin Review.

Dates: Five week course with classes scheduled 1:00 - 4:00 PM on Saturdays from March 21 - April 18.

Register: The class will be capped at ten students—so be sure to register soon to secure your space!

Location: UHeights Community Center, Room 109

Class Description: Each class is three-hours so that students have enough time to play, write, share, and discuss. Wear comfy clothes and bring your favorite device for writing (pen and paper or laptop). Light snacks will be included!
