Introduction to Playwriting



This ten-week programme has been created for novice or budding playwrights to explore the fundamentals of Playwriting.

Throughout this programme, you will develop the tools to craft stories using frameworks such as narrative structure through plot and setting. The course will look at how stories unfold to engage, fascinate, or tease an audience. It will also explore character and dialogue.

All of this will also be done in a way that is practical and non-academic. No prior knowledge is required for this course and all course materials will be provided. Openness, enthusiasm, support, a sense of humour, and a passion to learn how to explore ideas through writing for the stage is all that is necessary to take part.

Date, Time and Place

This course runs at various times throughout the year, for one evening a week over 10 weeks at The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art, Trinity Technology and Enterprise Campus, Pearse Street at Grand Canal Quay, Dublin 2.
