From Character to Revolution: A Sage Hill Playwriting Workshop
with Catherine Banks
Led by Nova Scotian playwright Catherine Banks, the Playwriting Workshop focuses on works in progress and combines group discussion, writing time, and individual critiques. Catherine will discuss character development, how a character’s questions and choices dictate the structure of a play, and how character responses and realizations can develop and promote new ways of thinking for both playwright and audience. Instruction occurs within a deep-immersion setting over ten days. Workshops and colloquium in other genres occur simultaneously on-site. The workshop is open to applicants 19 year of age and over, from Canada and abroad.
Join us at the sunny Living Skies Retreat Centre (formerly St. Michael’s Retreat) in Lumsden, SK. Your tuition includes meals, accommodations and, of course, excellent instruction.
Scholarships and bursaries are available to applicants.
