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 Jun 23 - Jul 28  (6 sessions) 
Time Slot 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Notes This is Tier 2 special topic.

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.
