Spring: March 27 - May 15
In any form of dramatic writing, the writer has two tools at their disposal: dialogue and action and yet, the possibilities of what they can create are endless! Whether you're writing for the stage or the screen, this class will focus on techniques such as crafting plot and structure, developing characters and keeping the audience engaged. This class is tailored to each student's specific writing goals, whether those are to work towards a full-length piece, or to refine their practice through writing several short scripts.
Instructor: Kirsten Easton
Kirsten Easton was born and bred in the suburbs of sunny Southern California. Though she now makes her home in Colorado, she’s a California girl at heart and finds any excuse to wear a good sandal. She holds a B.A. in both Theater and Sociology from Occidental College and an M.F.A. in Playwriting from Southern Illinois University. Her work experiments with theatrical forms and styles and explores themes of gender, identity, and the body. Her plays have been performed in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Houston (among others). In addition to her playwriting pursuits, she has taught courses in introductory theater, play script analysis and acting. When she’s not writing plays, Kirsten enjoys the challenge of keeping her succulents alive and befriending introverts.
