It’s easy to talk about all of the plays we want to write, but it’s much harder to actually write them. The writer Jack Spicer once famously intoned, “The poet is a radio,” and in this quick-and-dirty workshop we will seek to tune our creative dials and improve our artistic signals. We will use formalistic exercises in order to get out of our own ways and create work without reservation, exploring how rules and structures can actually unlock our writing processes. This workshop is about thinking less and doing more, about the magic we can get down on the page when we stop analyzing and start acting.
