Dramatic Writing

The Department of Theatre & Dance

We will press you for scripts, rewrites, more rewrites and always want to know what have your written for us lately. We will upset you, praise you, challenge you, inspire you—and then want even more

The curriculum offers continuing opportunities for producing new work from writers working in the MFA program. These opportunities create an environment where students are either preparing scripts for submission to our annual new works festival, submitting material for production to the local theatre community, or for the season of plays selected by students that is presented in our black-box, Theatre X.

Completing this program means you will have created a portfolio of a minimum of 6 scripts (3 full length stage plays, 1 full length screen play, 1 short screen or stage piece, and dissertation work). This work will have emerged from the courses in the Writing Core taken by all the MFA Writing students.
