THE VOICES OF AMERICA WRITERS WORKSHOP
Created and taught by David Davila, the Voices of America Writers Workshop is an affordable eight-week workshop for people of color and members of the trans community who want to tell their own stories through long form play and screenwriting. (This is not a TV pilot class).
The program was created in response to the inequality of opportunities available to marginalized communities. In this workshop writers use tools from creative writing, dramatic writing, and comedy writing/improv - focusing on idea generation, the art of dialogue, and story structure to create multi-dimensional characters and captivating narratives.
At the end of the workshop writers present scenes in a public reading and are then invited to the PlayGround Experiment to continue working on their new creations.
SPRING SESSION IS NOW TAKING APPLICATIONS. DEADLINE TO APPLY IS March 26th.
Classes start March 31st, with a final presentation on June 2nd.
