Inspired by Actual Events Workshop
Instructor: Playwright Calamity West

If you are inspired to write about actual events, then this six-week course is intended for you. Before entry you’ll need a well-researched and ready to be interpreted to the page inspiration in mind. Then strap in, because that idea will grow to a one-act play through converting original and secondary resources, feedback and weekly scene deadlines.

Prerequisites: Essentials 3 or permission of Instructor

Sessions/Weekday 6 Sundays
Start/End Date Dec 2 - Jan 13  (6 sessions) 
Time Slot 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Notes This is Tier 2 special topic. Does not meet 12/23.

About Special Topics Courses

Special Topics coursework is designed to focus on and often expand upon important topics presented in the Tiered tracks. Various formats are offered, from  the 2-day bootcamps where you will get a concentrated introduction or taste of other workshops, to intensives that take you through 3-4 days of targeted exercises, or the 6-7 week classes that deep-dive into important skill-building for progression of work.
