Loud and Clear Weekend Workshop (Intensive) (Spring 2021)

Jun. 12 - Jun. 13

1:00pm - 4:00pm Central Time
Instructor: Jenni Lamb

This workshop is for playwrights who are looking to hone their writer’s voice and create work that is grounded in their unique aesthetic and experience. Writers will also leave with the tools to create better artist statements.

In this two-day workshop, writers will participate in exercises that will allow them to explore and define their voice and create work based in their impulses. In a supportive environment focused on investigation, writers will leave with a clearer sense of their individual voice that will translate into stronger scripts and sharper artist statements. 

Levels: This course is ideal for writers of every level: beginner, intermediate, and advanced.
