PLAYWRITING This 10-week workshop is designed to help new and experienced writers start or develop new plays into scripts that are ready to be put on stage. Each 4-hour session includes: a warm-up writing exercise, reading and discussion of works in progress, reading assignments from dramatic literature to inspire writers with their work, and a closing exercise to focus on the next week’s work. The workshop culminates in staged readings of the works in progress at East West Players’ David Henry Hwang Theater.
