The Playwrights' Lab - Playwriting Workshops for Adult Writers

The Playwrights' Lab - Introduction to Playwriting is a virtual playwriting workshop for adult writers interested in learning and practicing the art of playwriting. In collaboration with The Welders, a playwrights' collective and theatre company in Washington, DC, this weekly workshop will be an introduction to playwriting, story structure, character and plot development, and best practices in the craft. 

Introduction to Playwriting currently takes place once a week on Tuesdays, 6:00pm - 7:30pm, from September 29 to November 17, 2020. 

Register now through October 6, 2020!


The Playwrights' Lab: Exploring Style and Form is the perfect follow-up to Introduction to Playwriting. Through writing original pieces, practicing exercises, and reviewing the work of their peers, playwrights will address dramatic writing style, form, and best practices in the craft.
