There will be two segments to the workshop:

  1. Beginning a Script. What does it take to be a good writer? How do you know if you have a good script? Who are you writing for? (who is your audience?)
  2. Two or three pages of a script from workshop attendees (limited number of participants) will have a staged reading followed by critical conversation.
