The Global Playwriting Workbook will compile and catalogue exercises and methods used by teaching playwrights from around the world. It will be a unique tool for aspiring playwrights, professors, and drama teachers at all levels. Different from other workbooks currently available, it will bring a broad range of perspectives, featuring practical exercises according to a variety of aesthetics. Ideas around playwriting and perspectives on how to teach it change from country to country, from culture to culture. The mission of this book is to give a comprehensive understanding of the art of writing plays from the Eastern to the Western hemisphere, and make inspiring materials available to everyone.
The Global Playwriting Workbook will be published by Methuen Drama in 2018.
