CAPTURING CHARACTERS led by Tamanya M. M. Garza (She/Her)
March 9th- April 20th, Wednesdays 6:00-8:00 pm (EST)
Starting from our own history and experiences and building toward the worlds we’d like to explore in our writing, this class will take a look at how character is built on the page and all the ways we bring the music of our own lives to the process. Investigating both writing techniques and the work of exciting new playwrights and poets with ties to Philly, this bilingual class is offered to writers at every level (no experience needed) and we’d love to see you there!
