Directed by award-winning playwright Evelyn Rudie, Writers Focus Group for ages 12-18 is an integrated arts approach to writing, concentrating on the dual aspects of creativity and marketability, with special emphasis on works for artistic performance. In the weekly 21/2 hour session, members develop poetry, scenes, monologues, lyrics, essays, do research, study play-reading skills, and work towards the creation of at least one theatre piece which will be produced on stage at the Playhouse. Acceptance also requires a writing submission.
[Note: This workshop does not take place every year, but is only offered when a requisite number of serious students are accepted.]
