Gary Richards Screenwriter, playwright, director, actor

This introductory course is designed to discover how to best find and tap into one's unique voice. Students will learn to view writing as a process, an ongoing developing skill and an art form to be practiced and refined. Discussions will focus on creativity and how it is affected by everyday experiences, spirituality and how we choose to live our lives. The goal is to realize a greater understanding of what it means to be creative and productive through our writings. Students will be assisted in manifesting their ideas into a first-draft screenplay. There will be guest lecturers (directors, actors and writers) and assigned readings.
