"Writing to Impact" explores an approach to writing and revising that starts with audience. Participants will explore how we, as dramatists, physically impact those watching. Starting with a map of the body, this workshop will help to build an arsenal of dramatic strategies through the discussion of impactful plays and theatre experiences. Part lecture, part discussion, part writing and reflection: participants should bring an idea or work in progress.
