Introduction to Playwriting is designed to create a supportive and stimulating environment for student playwrights to develop the essential tools necessary to craft plays. The art of playwriting is explored through analytic as well as creative work, including the use of writing prompts, play analysis, re-writing exercises, and play readings. The study and practice of these fundamental playwriting techniques culminate in the writing of a 10-minute play.
