Workshop (Edmonton): APN Playwrights’ Gym

Alberta Playwrights’ Network is proud to announce the start of the:
Edmonton Playwrights’ Gym

Want a creative workout? Want to kick-start for a new project? Or maybe you’d like to take a chance and try some new approaches to your writing process? Playwrights’ Gym is unique opportunity for playwrights to exercise their crafts via a series of in-class and take-home writing exercises, weekly discussions and sessions with senior Canadian playwrights and dramaturgs. Topics and writing assignments will give participants creative workouts in crafting dialogue, building characters, using structure, driving dramatic action, unlocking intuition and editing.

There will be homework each week, sharing, and timed exercises in each class. Playwrights are encouraged to work on a new short piece or use the class to enhance something they are already working on.

Classes will be convened by Director/ Dramaturg Heather Inglis with special guests, Daniel McIvor, Colleen Murphy, Mieko Ouchi, and Brian Dooley.

When: Classes will be held Mondays 7-10pm, November 14th to February 6th, 2012

Where: All classes will be held in the Workshop West Theatre’s 3rd Space*.

Fee: $250.00
