Saturdays July 25-Aug 29 from 10-noon at Hera Hub Mission Valley 8885 Rio San Diego Dr. 92108
How would you like to take that idea for a story that’s in your head and write it?
This 6-week playwriting workshop will take that spark of what you want to say and give you tips and tricks on how to put it on the page. And your 10-minute plays will be read aloud by actors in the final week!
No experience necessary. The only requirements are that you’re over 21 years of age and have a willingness to creatively explore women’s work experiences in a 10-minute play structure. By committing to the “What a way to make a living!” playwriting workshop, you give yourself the gift of claiming your voice and sharing your story in a supportive environment.
Each week Soroya Rowley co-founder of Circle Circle dot dot will lead the workshop and have fun exercises to spark your creativity and open your mind. Over the course of four weeks you will build your skills and have the materials you need to write your script, the last two weeks – scripts will be revised and a reading the final week.
What do I get for my 6-week; $70 commitment?
- An intimate workshop limited to 10 budding playwrights.
- An experienced and passionate workshop leader, Soroya Rowley co-founder of Circle Circle dot dot, playwright and actor.
- A safe, supportive welcoming workshop space, Hera Hub in Mission Valley. (oh and free parking)
- Inspiration, tools and tips to complete a 10-minute play.
- The chance to have your play read aloud by actors.
- The option to submit your work to be performed this fall at the Diversionary Theatre in the production of “What a way to make a living!” featuring several 10-minute plays about women’s work experiences in homage to the 35th anniversary of “9 to 5” the now classic film with Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda.
“We often wonder how to make our personal stories universal; well, perhaps it’s not a question of making our stories do anything. Maybe, instead, we simply need to provide common ground in the form of an object we use together. We sit down at the same table and the stories pass between us.” ~Brenda Miller
If you aren’t sure, then let me leave you with this reminder…
Every day women are told their story doesn’t matter, that their work isn’t really work. We know better! Don’t let this moment slip away – commit to 6 weeks of engagement with your stories, with your voice so that others may see that their stories matter. There is value in your story, in your work.
I can’t wait to see you there.
