About the Tier 1 Essentials Track
Comprising the Writers Studio’s Essentials 1 through 3 fundamentals sequence, students will explore their unique voice and theatricality, be able to describe and apply dramatic structure, write dialogue, stage direction, construct characters, arrange work in the correct industry format, and employ methods to give and receive feedback.
Essentials 1 is a prerequisite for Essentials 2, which in turn is a prerequisite for Essentials 3.
