THE VOICES OF AMERICA WRITERS WORKSHOP
Created and taught by David Davila, the Voices of America Writers Workshop is a free eight-week workshop for people of color and members of the trans community who want to learn how to tell their own stories through play and screenwriting.
Everyone's life experiences are important and there aren't enough trained POC writers to tell the multitude of POC stories. In this workshop non-writers learn to 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.
THE WRITERS WORKSHOP HAS BEGUN FOR THE WINTER/SPRING SEASON BUT IS TAKING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2020 SUMMER SESSION.
