Playwriting Online

The lights in the theater dim, and a play begins. Nothing beats the intensity of actors sharing the same air as the audience. The laughs and gasps and tears happen live, on the spot. And a play can be staged anywhere, from an empty space surrounded by folding chairs to a plush Broadway house.
 
A play will not soar in performance unless it’s great on the page. Here you will learn to write scripts that are theatrical, as well as dramatic-writing craft and how to market your work.
 
Whether you seek to write one-acts or full-lengths or musicals, we’ll show you how to write plays that draw the big applause.
