from Playwright, Novelist, Educator and GG Winner Kent Stetson’s
MasterPlayWorks.Writers ask if MasterPlayWorks’ Character Generated Plot in Drama and Prose Fiction on-line workshop can be presented in a condensed form. I like the idea. The 2010 summer course will run over four rather than eight weeks, one month rather than two. We’ll meet via Skype (voice only) twice weekly for four consecutive weeks—Wednesday evenings from 7-9pm, and Saturday afternoons from 2-4pm, beginning June 5, ending June 30. (No Saturday session June 5 only)
The month-long period more naturally reflects the actual discovery process. The revelation of character, story and plot elements will evolve more quickly, without decreasing the impact of craft exploration and the creation of your new material. I know people have jobs and families and busy lives. Your writer’s practice will be enhanced by intensive exploration of craft. Much of the work required is accomplished during the on-line session itself. The work load between sessions is manageable. You will progress without being over-burdened. Usually, about two hours between sessions gets the job done!
For more information, including course description, costs and pricing plans, go to www.masterplayworks.com, and check out our Facebook page. And while you’re at MPW, have a look at my just-launched, hot off the press novel, The World Above the Sky. Available at bookstores across North America (and around the world via. Amazon and Indigo) as of May 1. Be in touch. Write well and Prosper!
