This course will explore, through theory and (especially) practice, the rewriting/revising of plays, screenplays and teleplays. Students will begin the semester with a written piece of dramatic material that they wish to develop further. Through discussion, writing exercises, group feedback, and the study of existing scripts, each student will devise a revision process that is appropriate for their material and emerge with a new draft.
Prerequisites and Restrictions:
Previous creative writing or playwriting course and permission of instructor. Not open to first-year undergraduates. Please contact Nathan Davis, firstname.lastname@example.org, to apply.
