ENAM 0040 Drama

This is creative writing course for those who want to write drama. The student works closely with the tutor on producing dramatic writing, with special emphasis on designing plots, planning structure and executing dialogue for plays. Some study of the history of dramatic composition is included, although the focus is on the nurturing and development of the student’s own skills and capacity to produce original work.

Sample Syllabus:

The weekly syllabus is determined by the student’s own submitted samples of writing. Each week a new submission is required – either a stand-alone play or section of a longer dramatic work-in-progress, or possibly a reflection on the practice of writing drama. The tutor’s detailed feedback then provides the basis for the following week’s assignment.
