ENG335 Playwriting

[3–0, 3 cr.]

This course guides and enables to practice playwriting. Students participate in writing exercises that focus on sense memory and perception, engage inner processes that generate work, experiment with dramatic and compositional strategies, different forms, and develop structure, point of view, story, character, and dialogue. In writing workshops students generate and receive constructive criticism. Students read and discuss a short play or scene from different historical and cultural contexts, to study and explore the diversity of individual voices and styles.

Prerequisite: ENG102
