ENGW 377 - Creative Writing: Playwriting


This is a course intended to serve both those students who wish to write for a living and those who do not. It will offer a solid foundation and foster an understanding of storytelling from which all other content creation is derived. Aspiring playwrights will learn basic scriptwriting skills and sharpen them. All students will learn to appreciate, understand and parse play scripts, and they will be conversant in the jargon of playwriting, all of which will help them communicate with the writers, directors, and producers of any projects they may work on. The exercises in this course develop skills in shaping plot, structure, character and descriptive writing, while teaching efficiency and perseverance in the writing process itself. Students learn basic script format, and will write one 10-minute script and at least the first 30 pages of a full-length script. Course Codes: BHR. Prereq: ENGW*101 and 102. Cross-listed with THA*377; students are eligible to enroll if they fulfill prerequisite requirements for either course.
