Students reading scripts

Posted on January 13, 2017 by Matt Geske

Are you interested in script writing for theater or screenwriting for television and movies? Take our new “Creative Writing for Stage & Screen” course and explore your literary imagination!

For writers at any level, this class provides an in-depth look at the fundamentals of writing: dramatic structure, character development, and engaging dialogue. Students will develop their own scripts through a variety of writing exercises and workshops, culminating into a sharing of work at the final class meeting.

Acting For Young People Teaching Artists Zachary Wilcox and Andrew Reid will be teaching the 8-week course, which will meet Tuesdays 7-8pm starting February 14th.

Zachary Wilcox Acting Lessons“Everyone has a story to tell! No matter if it’s on the stage or screen, those stories should be told,” explains Mr. Wilcox. “We will be doing a lot of sharing of work in class, which helps tremendously with presentation skills, building on ideas, and collaboration.”

Zachary goes on to say, “Creative writing is important even if you don’t necessarily want to be a writer – pretty much every job out there requires the ability to write well. Plus, enrolling and completing a class like this looks awesome on college applications, no matter what field you’re moving towards!”

Perhaps you will be the next great playwright, or a script writer for a tv show. Or maybe you just want to learn how to tell a good story. Get your creative juices flowing, and register now!
