Saturday, June 25 & Sunday, June 26
10:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
The writing workshop will discuss the writer’s process from beginning to “end” (as if it ever really ends!). We will talk about the brainstorming process of story breaking, keeping track of story in a visual way, working through early drafts, and the later, ultra-specific stages of “dialogue chess”. We will also work with the participants in the acting workshop to create live scenes.
