P142-8106.1M19 - Be Your Own Hero: A Playwright’s Journey
By using Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey, Be Your Own Hero is a unique course that provides teachers the skills necessary to teach dramatic action which can be used in any medium - be it playwriting, television, or comic book writing. We often hear that good writers 'show and don't tell'. This class is geared through verbal, visual, oral, and improv creative exercises so the teacher emerges with several ways to reach their students - from those that are more verbal or visual, and for those that struggle with enjoying writing at all, or ESL students. The course also explores how the five senses in storytelling is crucial to world building and exploring our different dramatic writing mediums. What works in an audio drama might not in a TV show. What works on stage, would be told differently in a comic book, etc. But there are also many surprises how those mediums work together. Skills in plotting, communication of an idea, and the theater arts are all explored over these seven days where we explore how our own origin stories can help us create dynamic leading characters, and help us harness our own super power - the art of communicating new stories through words, stage pictures, pictures, and song.
