As soon as you finish your last line of dialogue, the need for rewrites begins. This 10-week class will be run just like real-life writing room, interacting with Josh and your classmates live via the Citrix platform. Open to new and returning students located anywhere in the world, this class will begin by establishing individualized writing goals to conquer over ten weeks. Whether you choose to embark on a rewrite of your entire play or focus on individual scenes, writing exercises and live lectures will inspire you to ask new questions of your play, look at it from various angles, and deconstruct it with individualized feedback. You will leave this class with a stronger version of your play, and with the tools you need to transform any first draft into a polished, compelling work that's ready to submit.
Previous online students please note that this class will follow a different structure than the ESPA Online First Draft and previous Online Rewrite classes. See below to learn more about our live lectures and interactive Citrix platform!

About the online platform for this class:
Citrix’s GoToMeeting is an easy, effective, and efficient way to interact online in a personable way without any complicated set-ups. The person running the meeting sends out a meeting link and at the time of your class, you just click the link to launch your attendance in the live virtual classroom experience. In the virtual classroom, each participant can share their webcam so that you’re not only hearing your instructor and classmates but seeing them too, making it feel similar to being in one of the studios at ESPA. If you can’t log in via a computer, there are also options to phone in to the meeting so you can still participate in the class, even if you find yourself without computer or internet access. And GoToMeeting has an iPhone and iPad app, making it possible to take part in class from any device.
