This class will help you foster your individual voice as a writer as you are held to weekly writing deadlines. This class will offer you opportunities to pitch ideas to others and collaborate with other students on assignments in class. You will also get to hone individual pieces through rewriting.

Students must bring a sketch to the FIRST session of class. This sketch should be no longer than four pages. This first sketch should be written utilizing the concept of the "Game of the Scene," taught in Sketch 101. Students should be prepared to devote time outside of class to completing new writing assignments for every session.

The class will end with each student receiving individual feedback from the instructor on their own sketch packet.

Students will be required to see two live sketch shows before the end of the course. 



Please note all tuition payments include a $35 non-refundable registration processing fee.
