Ages 12 - 19: Teen Lab Introduction to Playwriting

This six-week class will cover the essentials of good dramatic writing: structure; development of strong characters; the meaning and importance of conflict; finding a good story; finishing, editing, and rewriting. All this will be taught in a fun and creative way using prompts, discussion, and other generative techniques. This class is for students seriously interested in writing plays. We will read each other’s work and the class will learn how to use Liz Lerman’s Critical Response Process to give productive feedback.

Students under the age of 16 must be signed out by a parent unless BPA has a self-signout release for your child.
