    #ENOUGH's Program Associate Si Mon' Emmett guides young writers through simple prompts to get them writing. These lessons were originally meant to be used in the classroom, but with all that’s going on in the world, we’re meeting you where you are.

     

    Each video has built-in timed writing exercises to get young writers ideas organized. The time limit in the writing exercise is meant to get ideas flowing and keep you from overthinking. With that in mind, take the sessions at your own pace.

    In this session we’ll be covering ways to get your play onto a page through some free-writing, developing a full play synopsis, and creating scenes and characters. 

    This video corresponds with the Road Map for Writing You Play guide.

    This session is for the writer who already has a solid idea for their play, a script that’s outlined, or even a full first draft. In your time together, Si Mon' will provide you with a little guidance to tie up loose ends and go deeper with your writing. You will practice  working on your play by starting at the end, and use that to develop the plot. With a special cameo appearance by playwright Lauren Gunderson.

    This video corresponds with Writing Prompt 3: Start at the End.
