HOW TO WRITE A PLAY (A "Buy the Book/Get the Coach" edition)
HOW TO WRITE A PLAY (A "Buy the Book/Get the Coach" edition)

Since the time of the Ancient Greeks, the live theater experience has satisfied an audience's need for entertainment that is immediate, intimate and accessible to all ages and levels of society. Whether performed in an outdoor courtyard, on a vintage stage, in a school auditorium, or above the din of an urban coffeehouse, a play is an ever-evolving and timeless art form that derives its energy from both sides of the footlights. Unlike a novel or a film which is financed and produced only once, a theater script undergoes a new transformation with each change of cast and each change of venue. Even the passage of time itself impacts how a theatrical story will resonate with successive generations, giving new definition and perspective to old ideas or providing a yardstick of how far we've come from social mores that were once held as truth.

In this book, you'll learn what makes a play successful...and how to write one yourself! Unlike other how-to texts, however, this one offers an interactive component for receiving one-on-one feedback on the various writing assignments included in each module. The “Buy the Book/Get the Coach” concept gives you the option of being an active student or just enjoying the text as a reader. Either way, you’re guaranteed to not only have a great time but also to look at theatrical productions in an entirely different way from this moment forward.

The content you’re about to dive into was originally developed for the online playwriting courses I offer to writers of all ages. Whereas traditional classrooms or Internet chat rooms require you to tune in every week at the same place and time and in the company of other students, my own approach has always been a learning platform where you’re truly in a class by yourself! All of the lecture materials you need to understand the principles and dynamics of storytelling through the medium of live theater are contained in these pages along with creative exercises for applying what you learn.

HOW TO WRITE A TV SERIES (A "Buy the Book/Get the Coach" edition)
HOW TO WRITE A TV SERIES (A "Buy the Book/Get the Coach" edition)

Whether it's a wacky sitcom, a police drama, a soap opera, or a reality show, every TV program starts out as an idea in someone's head. Turning that rough concept into a series that viewers will want to watch every week, however, requires catching the interest of someone in the position of casting, directing and producing it. No simple task indeed, especially when you also have to factor in its ability to attract advertisers and sustain the interest and curiosity of the target demographic.

How do you know whether your idea lends itself to the limitations of the small screen? For one thing, it has to be a unique story that will resonate with an audience. Secondly, it has to be a story that you have the rights to negotiate; in other words, your own original material and not someone else’s. Third – and perhaps the most important element in the equation – is that you have to be truly passionate about what you’re trying to pitch for development instead of just thinking about how much money you could make that will allow you to quit your day-job.

Unlike the majority of how-to books on the craft of writing, this one offers a separate, supplemental coaching component in which readers who choose to complete the assignments in each module can receive one-on-one feedback from a film industry professional. For readers who want to skip the homework option, the full-color text provides a bounty of lecture material, recommended reads and screenwriting-related websites and resources.
