Anybody can write a good story. Not everyone can write a good sentence. David Mamet said that. This workshop will be a hands-on and interactive study into how to take your story and make it dramatic, how to make it into a compelling play or film, and how to write that elusive, good sentence.
You will learn why you love one movie and are able to watch it endlessly, and hate another. You will learn how the root of either feeling is in the writing, either good or bad, and you will learn from both. Mamet, August Wilson, Aaron Sorkin and Christopher Nolan are the names of some of the writers will be featured in the workshop. These names, and their craft, will be areas of study and you will learn how they do what they do and why, and take substantial steps down the path to becoming a genuine playwright or screenwriter. The workshop culminates in an event that features a reading of the play that you have written over the duration of the course, by trained actors.
8 sessions culminating in a public reading of scripts
