Creating interesting images and telling good stories are crucial skills in crafting effective writing. In this course students devise, rehearse, and perform original theatre pieces, in order to develop the writing processes of composition, revision, and presentation. Students will record their dreams and use this writing as source material in making performances. Students will also engage fantastical creative works ranging from "Beauty and the Beast" to the short stories of Franz Kafka, from Winsor McCay's comic strips to Shakespeare Behind Bars. This course is for theatre practitioners and non-performers alike. Students will also improve their scholarly writing through peer and instructor review and a multi-draft essay process.

When Offered Spring.
