Online Writing Classes at Primary Stages ESPA

Our online classes are an extension of our time-tested in-studio writing curriculum, designed for writers anywhere in the world! We will help you create or polish a draft of your new play or screenplay through weekly assignments and lectures, providing the necessary structure and deadlines to those outside the New York area or with unpredictable schedules.

This 10-week online class will guide you through the development of your first draft, providing concrete deadlines and constructive feedback that will encourage you to get your ideas on the page.
Section A Instructor: Adam Szymkowicz (Writer, Hearts Like Fists, Clown Bar, and prior member of Primary Stages Writers Group)
Section B Instructor: Caridad Svich (Writer, 2012 OBIE Winner for Lifetime Achievement)

Whether you choose to embark on a rewrite of your entire play or focus on individual scenes, writing exercises and online lectures will inspire you to ask new questions of your play, look at it from various angles, and deconstruct it with individualized feedback from Jeni.
Instructor: Jeni Mahoney (Writer, Fata Morgana at BCT; Founding Artistic Director, Seven Devils Playwrights Conference)
