Workbench New Play Workshop

June 12, 2021 - June 18, 2021

Have you ever wanted to write a play? Do you have a story you want to tell? Then, check out the Workbench New Play Workshop. Created by playwright/teacher Greg Paul, the Workbench is intensive and designed to guide a group of local writers through the process of writing their own, original, short play. Participants will be led through a series of writing exercises facilitated by Greg and guest playwright/poet Melanie

Goodreaux. In the span of just seven days, participants will go from a blank page to seeing their short play presented before a live audience. The workshop is free and is open to any and all interested writers. No playwriting experience is needed! The Workbench will meet in the Park Rapids Armory and will run June 12-18.
