D/D 205 Playwriting

Professor: Jeffrey Sichel

CRN: 12179

Distribution: F

Time: Wed 10:30 am - 1230 am

A class for beginning students of playwriting, the course will consist of a series of varied writing exercises, both in and outside the classroom. The student will explore, in dialogue, character, structure, and language, ways of garnering inspiration for and developing plot. The most exciting fragments of these exercises will later form seed ideas for the writing of ten minute plays. This first semester of an intended sequence of classes, should demand and quality of work warrant, is to be seen as an initial foray into the complexity and long-term creative process of playwriting. Subsequent semesters will lead to the writing of more substantial pieces of work for the stage. An approved piece of written work will be required for the instructor to give permission to enter the class. Open only to sophomores and first year students, majors and non-majors.
