STUSA Playwriting Workshop in Asheville

The Senior Theatre League of America will meet in Asheville, North Carolina, June 6-9, 1910, and there'll be a playwriting workshop during the conference. Here's the working draft of the description:


Playwrights gather each morning for a double session (roughly 9 to noon), working on exercises and assigned topics. Each writer will produced a ten minute play by the end of the conference, which will be given a reading by participants during the festival’s final session. Workshop will be coordinated by Dr. Alan Woods of Ohio State’s Department of Theatre, and an experienced playwright to be named. Woods, working with Theatre and Aging Pioneer Dr. Joy Reilly, teaches courses in the only graduate Senior Theatre program in North America at Ohio State. He has run the bi-annual Eileen Heckart Drama for Seniors Competition since 2003 and hosted an annual retreat for members of the International Centre for Women Playwrights since 2007. In addition, Woods sponsored the Limbo Project in 2008. More information is at; on the other projects, see, and
