Generating Pages with Jeff Ho

This online course is an opportunity to connect, collaborate, and create with a community of playwrights. Whether coming in with a draft in progress, or a completely new idea waiting to be launched: sessions will be structured to provide space to create, revise, and share material week to week – honed around the theme of generating material, working against perfectionism, working around nurturing curiosity and joy in playwriting. Through an exploration of playwriting exercises, practical conversations around new play development practises and dramaturgical collaborations, and discussions and sharing of material – participants will experience new tools and access tailored to their writing practise. From bristling language, to diving into the messiness of new writing, to that detailed process of revising, join us each week as we create, laugh, share, and connect over playwriting. 

PLEASE NOTE: Participants will be asked to write and read new material (monologues and short scenes) aloud throughout the course and to do assignments between classes. As this is a virtual course a reliable internet connection is ideal. If you do not have a reliable internet connection, and are interested in taking the course, please note it on your application. We are committed to finding an alternate way to facilitate your learning and participation in the course.
