Playwriting Class: Full-Length Plays

Sat, January 25, 2020 @ 1:00 pm

Glenn Hergenhahn-Zhao — acclaimed playwright, director, and founder of iDiOM Theater — is offering two separate six-month playwriting courses at Sylvia Center for the Arts this year. FULL-LENGTH PLAYS and SOLO PLAYS will each be offered as six-month, once-a-month courses.



Glenn’s FULL-LENGTH PLAYS class focuses on completing a full-length work for the stage. Classes will be held one Saturday each month, January through June 2020.

Prior experience with playwriting or one of Glenn’s earlier Intro to Playwriting classes is helpful, but not required. Students will complete writing outside of class, and receive feedback from their fellow students as well as the instructor.

Topics covered include:
  • Playwriting structure and formatting
  • Outlining
  • Dramatic elements
  • Dialogue
  • Story wheels
  • Expansive endings
  • Glenn’s recommended reading list of plays
  • Page targets to keep your projects on track

SATURDAYS, 1-4pm, 1x per month:
Jan 25th, Feb 15th, Mar 14th, Apr 25th, May 9th, June 6th

$225 General (non-member)
