FUTURE SCHEDULE

Check back regularly for schedule updates of the ongoing Story Weekend series and other workshops, such as the Short Series which invites you to write a play on Saturday and see it performed on Sunday.

New workshops and events may include: Story Basics – for beginners and experienced writers who want to review basic principles of dramatic storytelling – Master Class – for playwrights and screenwriters who have a completed script in need of editing – and future presentations in our New Writers/New Works staged reading showcase series.

Spring Shorts: It Happened One Weekend

Meeting in-person in San Francisco, this unique, creatively focused weekend intensive offers simple theme elements, step-by-step writing exercises, group feedback, and actor support to trigger and guide the development of a new short play. Arrive on Saturday morning with absolutely nothing prepared and take a creative leap into the blank page. By late Sunday afternoon, you will have not only written a new play but seen it performed!

While the workshop is designed for experienced playwrights, it has been successful with confident beginners and can be a great boost for writers who feel blocked, or rusty, or just want a writing change of pace. It’s fun, it’s creative – and it all happens in one weekend!
