Author: Neipris, Janet
Price: $46.99

A Masterclass in Dramatic Writing addresses all three genres of dramatic writing - for theatre, film and TV - in a comprehensive, one-semester, 14-week masterclass for the dramatic writer.

Including new material alongside revised, extended selections from Janet Neipris' original and much loved book To Be A Playwright, this volume takes the writer week-by-week up to a first draft and rewrite of a dramatic work.

Brand new chapters include:

* Beginnings
* Focus and Theme
* Comedy
* Writing for Television
* To Be A Dramatic Writer

Adding these to selections on Character, Dialogue, Fifty Questions, Endings, and Rewriting, Neipris has created a stunningly useful text which works across genres.

If your goal is a completed script to be proud of, you can have no more authoritative, inspiring and careful guide than Janet Neipris.
