Designed as an intro for the beginner or as a brush-up for the seasoned writer, this course focuses heavily on tools that will spark ideas on both what and how to write. Writer's block will never again be an excuse as numerous prompts and techniques get introduced to keep the pen flowing and the key strokes going. Each writer will end this course with a minimum of three ten-minute plays. They will also walk out with a notebook of exercises for future reference.
