SecondaryPlaywriting Workshop Tour
As little as $4 per student!
Begins November 2014

Florida Studio Theatre offers professional, in-class workshops as either a one day or a three day residency. Our professional teaching artists use FST’s proven teaching method to motivate your students to exercise their writing skills. By reinforcing techniques you already use in the classroom, FST can be your ally in the battle for quality creative writing.
Upon completion, plays and sketches can be submitted to Florida Studio Theatre’s annual Young Playwrights Festival – a contest that is open to grades K-12. Every student will be recognized for their participation and achievement with a personalized certificate. Winning writers will be honored by Florida Studio Theatre in the spring. Teachers may also continue to utilize the Florida Studio Theatre Teaching Artists as consultants and resources throughout the remainder of the school year.
