Literacy in Action (Masterclass: Drama/Performing Arts/English Teachers)
Writing Worlds and Those within Them:
A day-long journey through an age-old art form, this workshop sees participants writing as one, as some and as many, as we delight in the joy of fashioning landscapes and inventing populations.
Working from the macro to the micro, you will imagine worlds that hold countries, and countries that hold counties, and counties that hold mountains, and mountains that hold cities, and cities that hold citizens – a litany of citizens.
And from here, you will make the final authorial leap, entering into the mind and heart of a protagonist, and telling us what you find.
An exercise in inventing the skeleton of a play, in a day.
