Stonecoast is excited to offer an Academic Concentration in Scriptwriting. Scriptwriting faculty members, as well as Stonecoast students and alumni, have written scripts for theater, television, short films and feature films that have been widely performed and have attracted national media attention. Stonecoast residencies often feature staged readings and host professional actors to perform student works in our popular Dialogue Intensive workshop.
Students in the Scriptwriting concentration may pursue work in playwriting or screenwriting with a different faculty member during each semester of enrollment at Stonecoast. Students will also be able to attend presentations and panel discussions on scriptwriting and take at least one academic class in scriptwriting during each residency. Stonecoast students may submit a script for their final thesis in creative nonfiction, fiction, or popular fiction.
