Writing to be Seen offers students an introduction to the theory and practice of scriptwriting with the opportunity to read, view, evaluate, write, and revise texts meant to be performed for spectators.  Students will practice writing for film, television and the stage, with an emphasis on the critical reading of textual/visual literary models.  We will  examine selected scripts, performances, and several film and television clips as models for students’ own creative work.  Throughout the course, students will prepare frequent writing exercises and will share and provide feedback for each other’s scripts in a workshop format.
