Sketch Writing I

Our upcoming session (Sept 2019 – Nov 2019) is OPEN!


Improv is great. In fact, we love improv so much we put it right there in the name of our theater! But sometimes ideas are so wonderful, so spectacular, so monumentally awe-inspiring they must be written down for posterity. That’s where sketch writing comes in.

In our 8-week Sketch Writing I, you will learn the art of sketch writing. Brainstorming and writing exercises will stoke your creativity. Instruction in story structure, character development and script formatting will show you what to do with that creativity. Whether you have trouble writing your own name or have two published novels under your belt, this class is for you. At the end of 8 weeks, you will be able to call yourself a script writer.

(PLEASE NOTE: This class is for aspiring writers ages 18 and up. Westside Improv reserves the right to cancel class if enrollment fails to reach the minimum number of students necessary. Students with more than 2 absences will not be eligible to move on to Ensemble Class II.)

Fee: $225
