Creative Writing for Stage & Screen

Screenwriting class

Posted on September 09, 2016 by Matt Geske

We are excited to announce the Academy’s first Creative Writing class! “Creative Writing for Stage & Screen” for adults ages 18+ will introduce fundamentals of writing for the camera and the theater, including dramatic structure, character development, and engaging dialogue. Beginners and “old hats” alike will enjoy this workshop-style course.

The 8-week class, taught by Zachary Wilcox and Andrew Reid, will start on Tuesday, October 4th, 7-8pm and run through November 22nd. At the end of the session, students will have a chance to share their own developed/ developing scripts.


“We will present this class in a workshop-style atmosphere,” explains Mason Theater alum Zachary Wilcox, “similar to a playwriting workshop I recently attended at the Kennedy Center. We want to have a very open and free-sharing vibe to it. Our goal is for participants to create new original ideas and/or develop their own pre-existing material.”


If scriptwriting, screenwriting and/or playwrighting is your thing, this class is for you!
