BRING YOUR STORY TO LIFE
Have you always wanted to write and perform a solo show? Does the idea thrill and/or terrify you? Do you feel like you've got a story to tell...but you're not quite sure what it is yet?
You're not alone!
Join Mary-Beth Manning for a fun and lively 12-week course on writing your own one-person show where you can share your material in a safe, supportive, and creatively stimulating environment. Through writing exercises, one-on-one discussion, and sharing of your material, Mary-Beth will guide you through the process of generating a rough draft of approximately half an hour of material (five-minutes a week) over the course of six weeks.
"Mary-Beth has an intuitive ability to grasp the strength and profoundness of each story and to gently guide you towards finding your own way to express it."
Class Size: Limited to 4 female writers (and for all who identify as she/her).
Class Length: 12 weeks (this is an ongoing workshop for writers at all levels)
Class Days and Times: Tuesdays 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. (Pacific Time)
Price: $800/12 weeks
Please note: There are no refunds for this workshop, nor transferring registration to other classes. We do not prorate for missed classes.
