What you'll learn in this communication skills training:

Wish Casting would see you as your dream type? Stop looking for the perfect role and create your own. A writing for actors class is key to taking control of your own narrative. In this 8-week workshop, actors learn how to use the storytelling skills they already possess to write monologues, sketches, scripts, and screenplays for themselves and others. Explore your experiences on the page to create personal and original writing.

The Writing Actor is for you if you...

  • Want to create deeply expressive content that reflects the world that only you know.
  • Want to write but don't know where to start.
  • Are dying to write your own audition monologue, play, or pilot.

After this course, you will…

  • Create personal audition material that showcases your type and talent.
  • Know how to build your character into a scene, into a play, into a world.
  • Have the tools and confidence to take your great ideas and put pen to paper.

5 Reasons Why Actors Should Take a Writing Class

  1. Only you know that character deep inside who has been dying to come out.
  2. Casting Directors can only handle hearing Neil Simon monologues so many times…
  3. Auditions are not the only way to carve out an acting career. Some actors, like Issa Rae (creator of HBO’s Insecure), take the bull by the horns and write their own roles.
  4. Writing can fuel the creative passion that keeps you moving forward.
  5. Actors are master improvisers and character builders. They can bring so much to the heart of a story. Why not use that talent?
