Writers' Workshop for Teens:

The 10-Minute Play

Join Luna Stage and playwright Kaela Mei-Shing Garvin for "Write A 10-Minute Play!"

INSTRUCTOR: Kaela Mei-Shing Garvin

‍JUNE 10 - JULY 8 


For youth ages 12+

90 minutes

$10 (can be waived upon request) *

This interactive workshop for teens is limited to 8 participants, and will include individualized writing prompts, opportunities to hear your work aloud, guided feedback, and support in polishing one (or more!) short plays. It is open to teens fourteen and up with any level of writing experience.


And because we're all looking forward to the time when we can be back in the theatre together, Luna Stage hopes to present a festival of these new pieces once we can open our doors again!

*There is a $10 registration fee because we have found that financial commitment, however small, impacts your experience as a participant. However, we are happy to waive the fee if it is a hardship or a barrier to entry--just email us and let us know.
