Current offerings 

You might be new to playwriting, or you’ve written a play before. Maybe you have a story you want to tell but aren’t sure how to begin writing your play. Maybe there is a trickster story from your tribe you want to adapt into a play but aren’t sure how to bring your characters to life. Maybe there is a story that is hard to tell because of the weight or the trauma the story carries so you don’t know where to begin writing your play. This playwriting class is designed with writing prompts and activities in the hopes of guiding you to write your play. A playwriting kit will be provided and mailed to writers. The kit will include one published play by a Native American author, a pen, notebook and snack.

This class is free and open to Native community members of all ages and levels of experience. Upon registration, participants will receive a Zoom link. If you have questions, please email

Thursdays: June 1 – July 20 | 5:30–7:30 p.m.
