  • Online Courses through Rosebud School of the Arts

I teach two courses by email through Rosebud School of the Arts, one intro and one advanced. They both end in the Budding Playwrights Festival in Rosebud: all the writers’ plays receive a staged reading for an audience. This is an in depth course, great for those in other provinces, parents, busybodies, and those who really want a good theatre work out. In the intro course, writers complete several scenes that I dramaturge one on one through email correspondence. In the advanced class we study contemporary plays and write four drafts of a full length play. This is a very reasonably priced course considering the amount of instruction the student receives.
