Playwriting: Exposition and Process

Loading Events

What does your audience need to know and when do they need to know it? In this introductory workshop we will consider various strategies for managing exposition in the context of process in writing a play (getting started, exploring a first draft, analysis and revisions). We will look at examples to better understand how to handle exposition and discuss strategies to employ at various stages of the process. Although the focus in this session will be on playwriting, writers of all genres are welcome.

Teaching style: Richard's goal every workshop is to create a community for writers where everyone involved can explore, develop and stretch their writing skills. This involves not only providing an opportunity to practice writing but to learn how to give and receive feedback in a way that is meaningful to the writer. His hope is that writers find the workshop environment a safe place to learn and explore the craft of writing and that they acquire tools and skills they can apply to the development of their work after the workshop ends.
