Completing a draft is a huge accomplishment, but shifting your point of view from writing to rewriting can be disorienting and murky.

Instructor: Melissa Ross (Writer, Of Good Stock at MTC, Nice Girl at Labyrinth)

Saturday, December 1 and Sunday, December 2
1:00pm – 6:00pm

This class might be for you if you:
  • Have a draft of a play that you are ready to begin the revision process on, but need to get organized before embarking on rewrites. 
  • Need some inspiration to jumpstart the rewriting process.
In this class you will:
  • Bring in a draft of a play that you are revising or would like to start revising. 
  • Interrogate your play by diving into writing exercises geared toward rewriting, which you will apply to your play. 
  • Share your work along the way, so you can hear and reflect on the drafts of your scenes as you go. 
  • Have a one-on-one consultation with Melissa on the second day of the workshop to ensure you have a clear picture of what you want your play to be.
By the end of this class you will:
  • Have a focused idea of where your play is headed and clear agenda for your revision process. 
  • Be ready to join our Rewriting Your Draft class and start the process of revising your play! 
Our award-winning faculty, comprised of working professionals in the field, provides practical skills and expert guidance in a collaborative community atmosphere.
