The Rewrite - On-Line Version
with Public Programs Director Mia McCullough

Sunday nights for 6 weeks

Submit a completed draft of a play (or screenplay) that you want to work on when you register for class. Each play will be read by the instructor and the class. Two-to-three students' plays will be discussed per class during weeks 1-3 along with tricks for working one's way through the rewrite process.  During weeks 4-6 writers will send in rewritten sections of their plays to be read in advance and discussed on-line.

Writers taking this class must commit to reading their classmates' scripts before they're discussed, being on-line in our chosen video conference forum during class time,  and making changes to their own scripts. McCullough will provide written notes as well.

Where: On-line using Zoom. You will receive a link to the meeting site prior to class. You must have a solid internet connection along with a computer with working speakers so you can hear and a microphone so that the class and instructor can hear you.  A working camera is a bonus, but not 100% necessary. Pdfs will be shared via email prior to class, and some scenes will be read during class. You are expected to access class from a quiet place with limited interruptions and distractions.
