Class Description:
Writers will learn to develop theatrical worlds not limited to everyday conversation and typical dramatic structure. Fabulism combines the best of all worlds, including science fiction, fable, fantasy, horror, magical realism, and fairytale, and injects them into everyday life. Through a series of exercises, writers will expand their own realistic worlds and explode them into new and innovative ways to tell stories on the dramatic stage. Let the magic commence. No experience needed!

Tuesdays, July 30 - August 20, 7 - 9 pm EST
