Playwriting Technique

HB Studio offers both online classes and in-person classes at the Studio. Before your first class, please review the information outlined on the relevant page(s). Class titles below indicate which are running online vs. in person.

All Playwriting Classes at HB Studio are offered Online and meet for 10-week terms.


Open to everyone. From first-time writers to experienced playwrights who want to go back to the basics and/or expand their creative processes. This class will include readings (plays, essays, poems, prose), mini lessons/lectures, in-class exercises, take-home assignments, and hearing students’ work read aloud. The goal of this class is to explore what plays might be and how we might write them. And to have fun. For two assignments, students will be asked to write new short plays. For the rest of the assignments, students will be invited to apply them to plays already in process or to plays not yet begun.
