ENG-106 - Writing for Stage and Film

3 credits

The purpose of this class is to learn the craft of playwrighting through writing assignments, self-evaluation, peer-evaluation, and extensive class discussion. Working from a plot assignment, students will write short, three-page scripts that will explore relationships, situations, and emotions. Students will then hear their scripts read back to them in class, followed by class discussions, with room left for the playwright to ask his/her own questions. This class will develop writing skills, listening skills, observational skills, and relationship skills.

Prerequisite(s): ENG-101 ( minimum grade C- ).
