Step Two: after the Big Idea
So you've always wanted to write a play, and you have a great idea for it.  Maybe the inspiration came to you in a dream, while watching a play, or over your cornflakes. You have that Big Idea, but you're not sure what to do next. You need help putting your idea onto the page.  In Step Two, playwright S.P. Miskowski will discuss strategies for getting started, and then guide you through a writing exercise designed to help you take the Big Idea and start building it into a play. Whether you've tried writing a play before or you are tackling your first script, this workshop will help you break the ice.

About S.P. Miskowski:
S.P. Miskowski graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Washington. The same year she received a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship for playwriting. Since then UW, Youth Theatre Northwest, Seattle Theatre Project, New City Theater, New Image, Northwest Actors Studio and Mae West Festival have produced her plays. A Contemporary Theatre's FirstACT program and New City Theater have commissioned her, and she has been invited to workshop plays at Asylum Theatre and at GEVA in Rochester. Watusi, a coming-of-age story about a girl living in Decatur, Georgia in the mid-1960s, was included in the Cherry Lane Alternative reading series in New York City. Her play about cyberbullying, my new friends (are so much better than you), was nominated for the 2009 American Theatre Critics Association/ Steinberg New Play Award. Published by The Absent Willow Review, Identity Theory, The Stranger, Horror Bound Online Magazine, Other Voices, Fine Madness, Black Ice and other journals, Miskowski has won two Swarthout prizes and received an NEA fellowship for short fiction.

This workshop is made possible with funds from 4 Culture.

A limited number of need based scholarships are available.  Please contact Meghan@lgtheater.org for more information.
