February 2nd: Generating Ideas for Plays
How will you decide what to write about? Take part in brainstorming and creative play writing exercises as you begin the playwriting process.

February 9th: Exploring Character and Setting
Who are the people in your play? In what world does it take place? In this session, you'll learn how to build strong, lifelike characters, and create settings that add depth and interest to your story.

February 16th: Digging Into Dialogue
What are your characters fighting for? This week we'll look at why and how your characters talk to each other, and how they can use their words as weapons to achieve their goals and move the play's action forward.
