Content Creation + Digital Dramaturgy with Elena Belyea

Hi! I’m Elena, I’m a playwright/sketch writer, and my apartment is never cleaner than when I have a deadline. (I’m pretty sure the hardest part of writing, at least for me, is stapling my ass to my chair long enough to do it). This workshop is designed to get your creative juices flowing, to unstick even the most determined writers’ block, and experiment with new ways of making and writing for both live and digital audiences. See you there! x
