Description

“Real world” workshop means hands on; it means that from the start you’ll be writing. “Real world” means an atmosphere of safety,encouragement and fun -- where you’re free to explore and develop your unique style. “Real world” means learning new techniques for tapping into creativity and inspiration. “Real world” means a portion of each session devoted to essentials like gaining access to getting play readings, submitting your play for competitions, writing a provocative synopsis and cover letter and much more. Whether you’re already writing a play or have yet to create your magnum opus, you’ll be developing skills that not only help put your play onto the page, but skills that can help you bring it from the page to the stage.

Kip Rosser began writing plays while in middle school. Since that time, he has authored over a dozen plays, ranging from musicals to full length dramas to numerous one-acts. Equipped with a BFA in Acting/Directing from Ithaca College and an MFA in Directing from Northwestern, Rosser moved to New York City and worked as a director, playwright, graphic artist and copywriter. In 2002, The Dallas Theater Conference’s Plays for the Twenty-First Century awarded him First Place for his play, "Rare

He took third place in the San Francisco Playwright’s competition for his original drama, "To Sleep She Alice Toklas Goes." Stage West in Fort Worth Texas produced his outrageous, surreal comedy, "Foxcodd." 2005 saw his original full-length play, "Unholy Secrets of the Theremin," with concert pianist, Jef Anderson, produced at the New York International Fringe Festival and receiving overwhelming critical
praise. His works have received dozens of readings and staged readings. Also a skilled performer, Rosser’s most current writing takes the form
of solo performance pieces featuring the Theremin.
