Semester Hours:3-4Fall, Spring
Designed to introduce the student to the fundamental elements of play construction. Particular emphasis will be placed on such components as plot, character, dialogue and action. While this is primarily a writing course, each student will be asked to complete certain reading assignments during the semester. There will be no exams or term papers; instead, brief (script) writing assignments combine with a final project of a one-act play. Classes are conducted according to a workshop format, allowing for discussions of general topics and specific challenges.
Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes: WSC 001; CRWR 133, or permission of instructor. May not be taken on a Pass/D+/D/Fail basis. (Formerly Introductory Playwriting Workshop.)
