Prologue – The Building Blocks of Dramatic Writing: Have you read, seen and participated in theatre, but have never thought like a dramatic writer thinks? Join Trevor Rueger of the Alberta Playwrights Network in an intensive which discusses the building blocks of dramatic writing using Hamlet as the source material. Trevor will cover Aristotelean Unities, exposition, conflict/crisis/resolution, comedy, character, structure, as well as the difference between writing for the stage as opposed to other genres (novel, film, short story, poetry.)
