Curious about different creative writing genres (I've dabbled in poetry in the past), I was surprised to find that most of the other students in this small workshop were actors, screenwriters, and/or theatre or film majors. They brought perspectives and voices and pieces that knocked my socks off. Once weekly for 2 hours, we cast each other to read our 5-page scenes, followed by a brief discussion of the assigned reading (one play, usually 70-100 fast, enjoyable pages). Prof. Tolan has a lot of wisdom to share, so soak it all up! I feel like I've grown and learned a lot. Would recommend for non-CW-majors!!
