By taking a collage approach to creating text about an incident or idea, we will create meaning out of chance and accumulation.
Jackie Sibblies Drury wrote We Are Proud to Present a Presentation… produced by Soho Rep. in the 2012 season.
You’re invited to become a creator and collaborator at our home on Walker Street during WRITE WITH US, a festival of free workshops with writers who have received productions at Soho Rep. Each playwright will share their unique creative process with you, and beginners are welcome.
Classes are open to 60 participants. If sold out, a digital waitlist will open at www.sohorep.org the week of WRITE WITH US.
All workshops are free.
