I’m TEACHING EXTREME PLAYWRITING in SAN FRANCISCO

{“Extreme Playwriting,” a one-day classroom intensive. Ever jumped out of a plane to go skydiving on paper? Let’s have an adventure in extreme playwrighting with a series of pen-to-page exercises that open new writing possibilities for both novice and experienced writers. We’ll brainstorm micro and macro stories, silent moments and cacophonous ones, sparse worlds and decadent stage pictures, in a process exploring contrasts and risks on the page. Where are the edges of what you are able to make? We’ll push our creativity to the farthest places we can. Bring a pen and paper, and let’s be real, you might want to have a cup of coffee first.
